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

A 150 grams particle oscillating in SHM travels 24 cm between the two extreme points in its motion with an average speed of 60cm/s

Find

a) angular frequency

b) the maximum force on the particle

C) the maximum speed

3. The attempt at a solution

My first question would be what approach to use ?? This is the first problem I do with a particle. I am having trouble just finding the angular frequency and I don't even know if am suppose to use the weight for the first answer.

My second question is , what do they mean by maximum force on the particle ?

is it somewhat like a spring Fsp = kx ?
