## Homework Statement

An oscillator with a mass of 600 g and a period of 1.20 s has an amplitude that decreases by 2.50% during each complete oscillation. If the initial amplitude is 6.40 cm, what will be the amplitude after 50.0 oscillations?

## Homework Equations

How do I approach this problem. I am so confused

Ive been using xmax=Ae(-t/2x)

with no luck. any help would be great

## The Attempt at a Solution

m=600g

T=1.2s

amplitude decreases by 2.5%

I think my problem is I dont understand were xmax is coming from or even how to find it. A hint is great!

Thanks.
