1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A block weighing 16.0 N is able to slide without friction on a 37.0° incline. It is connected to the top of the incline by a massless spring of unstretched length 0.550 m and spring constant 180 N/m.

(a) How far down the incline would you have to place the block so it would not oscillate when you let go?

(b) If the block is pulled slightly down the incline from where you placed in part (a) and released, what is the period of the resulting oscillations?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to even start this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated!
