- Homework Statement:
- An object of mass m=1kg is executing a simple harmonic oscillation. During its oscillation it passes from a point A at which the speed of the object is u=1m/s and the force that its acting on it is F=2N. When the object passes form point B is moving with a speed u'=2m/s and an acting force of F'=1N. What's the frequency of the oscillation and what's the biggest distance from the equivalence position.

- Relevant Equations:
- T=2π/ω, ΔΚ= W, F=kd

First of all, I found a function of the distance of the object form the equivalence point in both cases. I got something like d=2d' where d is the distance at the first case and d' at the second. I did that because I wanted to find the frequency, and so first I need to find the period of oscillation. In order to find the period I need to know D ( T=2π √m/D ). I used energy theorems to get an other equation involving d and d' but I am stuck. I think that the problem is quite easy but I just can't get to the answer. Any Ideas?
