[SOLVED] Mechnics - Small Oscillations 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A body of uniform cross-sectional are A= 1cm^2 and a mass of density p= 0.8g/cm^3floats in a liquid of density po=1g/cm^3 and at equilibrium displaces a volume of V=0.8cm^3. Show that the period of small oscillations about the equilibrium position is given by t = 2*pi*(v/gA)^.5 where g is the gravitational field strength. Determine the value of t. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I am totally lost on this one. I am thinking that I would need to find the mass of the object, which is simple because the density and volume are given. What do I do after that?
