Homework Help: Simple harmonic motion

  1. Apr 29, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Please find the question in the attachment,i've attached it because it includes a graph

    2. Relevant equations
    a=-(omega)^2.x
    T=2.pie/omega
    Vmax=omega.A

    3. The attempt at a solution
    for part b i used the first equation a=-(omega)^2.x to find omega and then substituted the value of omega in the second equation mentioned above.
    a=-(omega)^2.x
    omega=*sqrt*a/x
    omega = 1.5/10
    omega=0.39
    and thus T=1.6 m/s
    Please tell me if i'm right so far?
    for part c
    i can use the third eq but i can't figure out how to find the amplitude?
