- Homework Statement
- A particle of ##100 g## moves with simple harmonic motion. When the particle is ##8 cm## away from its position of equilibrium its velocity is ##45 \frac{m}{s}## and its acceleration is ##300 \frac{m}{s^2}## opposing the motion. Find the amplitude and frequency of oscilation.

- Relevant Equations
- ##A=\sqrt (x_0^2 + \frac{\dot x_0 ^2}{\omega^2})##

I have the formula for amplitude ##A=\sqrt (x_0^2 + \frac{\dot x_0 ^2}{\omega^2})##.

But ##x_0## and ##\dot x_0## refers to the initial conditions, and the information that I'm given is not related to the initial conditions, or at least I'm not told so.
