hi
i have no idea how to do it, can some one give me a direction or an outline?


A 1.05 kg mass is suspended from a spring, with a spring constant of 161.0 N/m. Find the driving frequency which would cause resonance.

all i need is to know where to start from

If this question is about the effect of damping on the resonant frequency of a mechanical system, you will need more information. In particular, the size of the damping force.
If damping isn't significant, then you just need to use the formula for the period or frequency of oscillation of a mass on a spring.
Do you know that formula?
