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

Calculate the spring constant of a spring with an electron mass at itsend and the frequency 4.9X10^14 Hz. mass of electron: 9.11X10^-31 g

2. Relevant equations

F=kx

k=mg/x

3. The attempt at a solution

Since i know the frequency, i can get the period, but where i am stuck is how to turn the period into an x value that i can use to determine the value of k. should i be using coulomb's law for this?
