"If a 30 g bird lands on a slender branch where it oscillates up and down with simple harmonic motion of amplitude 3.00 x 10^-2m and period 1.2 s"...

trying to find an equation to solve for max acceleration, expressed as a fraction of the acceleration of Gravity as well as maximum speed... any help would really be appreciated and thanks a lot to anyone that reads this
