I came across this question reviewing for my test next Thursday. Anyway, I can calculate the angular frequency using the period, but I am not sure what to do after that. Any help is appreciated.

What happens when the downward acceleration exceeds *g*? :-)

That depends on how you start the oscillation! In either case, what happens if the acceleration exceedsnazarip said:

I'm guessing there's a problem with your calculation. Why don't you show what you've done?

v=-wAsin(wt+phi)

a=dv/dt=-Aw^2cos(wt+phi)

I set phi=0 (maybe went wrong here?) and...wait a second, hmm. Ok, I had to set t=0 also, then I just solve for A. Nothing like solving a problem at 2:02 am. Thanks for the patience Tide.

(:D i'm as always bothered by the absence of the effects of air resistance and such in these problems)
