## Homework Statement

A spring is standing upright on a table with its bottom end fastened to the table. A block is dropped from a height 3 cm above the top of the spring. The block sticks to the top end of the spring and then oscillates with an amplitude of 10 cm. What is the oscillation frequency?

## Homework Equations

Not sure if this energy equation applies. 1/2k A^2 = 1/2 k x_0 ^2 + 1/2 m v_0 ^2

w = 2 pi / T T = 2pi root( m/ k)

f = 1 /T

w = root ( k/m)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really have no clue on how to start this problem. But i believe i can use the first energy equation to find k . But i am really stuck. Can you guys help me out.
