I drew a free body diagram and summed up the forced to get:

[tex]F_{t} - mg= 0[/tex]

Since [tex] F_{t}= -kx [/tex] , I substituted it in.

Using the equation [tex] t= 2\pi\sqrt{m/k} [/tex], I solved for k and got .316. I plugged this into the equation and got x=1705 m, which isn't right... can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
