**Derivative: position, velocity, acceleration as functions of time???**

## Homework Statement

A 1.00 kg glider attached to a spring with a force constant of 25.0 N/m oscillates on a frictionless, horizontal air track. At t = 0, the glider is passing through its equilibrium position with a velocity vx = - 0.150 m/s. (The negative sign means that the glider is headed in the direction which will compress the spring.)

**Find the position, velocity, and acceleration as functions of time. Include units. Think carefully about the initial phase.**
