Homework Statement
A 50 lb weight is attached to the end of a spring. The spring is stretched 6 inches. Find the displacement from equilibrium of the weight after (π/8) seconds, if the weight is released from a point 2 inches above the equilibrium position. Round to the nearest length of a foot.
Homework Equations
(d^{2}/dt^{2}) + (k/m)x =0
mass m = w/g, where g = 32 ft/s^{2}
F=ks, where k is the spring constant and s is how much the spring is stretched
mass m = w/g, where g = 32 ft/s^{2}
F=ks, where k is the spring constant and s is how much the spring is stretched
The Attempt at a Solution
My professor says that the answer is 0.2 ft. However, I am getting 0.11 ft.
