Simple Harmonic Motion

  1. Oct 3, 2004 #1
    A block rides on a piston that is moving verticallly with simple harmonic motion. A) If the SHM has a period of 4.9 seconds, at what amplitude of motion will the block and piston separate? B) If the piston has an amplitude of 4.0 cm, what is the maximum frequency for which the block and piston will be in contact continuously?

    What have you done in order to solve this problem?

    got it!

    i actually figured it out already using g=(omega)^2(x) thanks for your help though
