Homework Statement


A 0.61 kg mass attached to a spring (k = 27 N m-1) is performing SHM on a smooth horizontal surface.
Calculate the periodic time of these oscillations.

Homework Equations


ω=2π/T
ω=2πƒ

The Attempt at a Solution


I think I need to find out the angular frequency ω of the oscillations in order to calculate the periodic time using ω=2π/T, but I have no idea how to calculate ω since it doesn't give you the frequency ƒ ?

Check your textbook for the relationship between frequency, mass, and spring constant.
