A weight hanging on a vertical spring is set in motion with a downward velocity of 6 cm/sec from its equilibrium position. Assume that the constant w for this particular spring and weight combination is 2. Write the formula that gives the location of the weight in centimeters as a function of the time t in seconds. Find the amplitude and period of the function and sketch its graph for t in the interval [0,2(pie)][/i][/b][/tex][/list][/code](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
