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

A 8.3 kg mass slides on a frictionless surface

and is attached to two springs with spring

constants 28 N/m and 62 N/m that are on either side of the mass.

Find the frequency of oscillation. Answer

in units of Hz.

2. Relevant equations

(2pi sqrt(m/k))^-1

3. The attempt at a solution

subtract the constants from each other to find the coonstant of the system. use this in the equation above. I got about .322Hz is this right?
