(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a force of 2.0 N is needed to push a .1k jack in the vox into its box, an operation in whihc the spring is compressed .1 m. what will be eh maximum speed of the jack in the box when it comes out?

2. Relevant equations

k=f/x

T=2pi(sq.root(m/k)

Vmax=(2piA)/T

3. The attempt at a solution

I took the force and used k=f/x eq. and have 20N/m for the force constant which was k.

then i used the T equation and have .4442882938s.

then i used the vmax eq. with the answer from T to get 1.414 m/s as the max. velocity

did i do it right or have made a mistake somewhere?

thank you in advance
