That's certainly one way to solve for m/k. But what would you use for y? Where is the equilibrium position.one way is to use the equilibrium displacment equation, y = mg/k, but i didnt get the right answer from there
Mechanical energy will involve m, v, and k. But that's good since that's what we're trying to find. (Remember that we want m/k so we can find the period.)but wait, for mechanical energy equations wouldnt i need m, v, or k...so im utterly confused, can i ask you a favor of working the problem out so i can see what you mean?
