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

A 800g oscillator has a speed of 120.0 cm/s when its displacement is 1.5 cm and 55.0 cm/s when its displacement is 8.0 cm.

a. What is the oscillator’s maximum speed?

b. What is the oscillator’s maximum amplitude?

2. Relevant equations

A= sqroot(X^2+(V^2/w^2)

Vmax=wA

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted to find the angular frequency but even with w=sqroot(k/m) i couldnt find a way to solve for w
