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

A 200-g object is oscillating in simple harmonic monition with an amplitude of 2 cm and a period of 0.4 seconds. Find the velocity when its displacement from the equilibrium position is 0.5 cm.

2. Relevant equations

Restoring Force = -(constant force)(displacement)

Elastic PE = 1/2 k(s squared)

velocity = [itex]\sqrt{k/m(A squared - s squared}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I just need help finding the constant force. If I can figure out how to solve that variable, I can finish the problem just fine.
