An air-track glider attached to a spring oscillates with a period of 1.50 seconds At t=0 the glider is 5.40 cm* left of the equilibrium position and moving to the right at 39.2*cm/s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the phase constant , if the equation of the oscillator is taken to be x=A*cos(wt+Fi original) ? Give an answer in the range -Pi rad<Fi Original<Pi rad.

This question is stumping the hell out of me haha, any help would be appreciated, thanks guys
