What is the amplitude of oscillation (A) of the scale after the slices of ham land on the plate? Express your answer numerically in meters and take free-fall acceleration to be g = 9.80 m/s^2 .

Any help on how to solve this question would be appreciated - Im not sure how to solve it using y(t) = Acos(omega*t + phi). How do you determine the initial position y_0 and initial velocity v_0 from this equation?
