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

Now assume that the x coordinate of point R is 0.12m and the t coordinate of point K is 0.0050 s.

What is the period T ?

2. Relevant equations

T = 1/f where f is the frequency and T is the period.

3. The attempt at a solution

From the graph, there are 2 periods in oscillation. So I guess that the period would be 2T and since it starts at R = .12m and reaches point K in .0050 s . So the velocity is .12m/.0050 s = 24m/s

Not sure if this is correct but, T = 2T = .12m/.005s = T = 12 s
