a 1 kg mass attached to a spring with a force constant of 25 oscillates on a horizontal, frictionless track. At time t=0, the mass is released from rest at x=-3cm (the spring is compressed by 3cm). Find (a) the period of its motion. b) the max values of speed and acceleration. c) the displacement, velocity, acceleration as a function of time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a)

[tex]T=2\pi \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}[/tex]

[tex]T=2\pi \sqrt{\frac{1kg}{25N/m}}[/tex]

[tex]T=1.257s[/tex]

b)

[tex]v_{max}=\omega A=\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}*A =\sqrt{\frac{25}{1}}*0.03=0.15m/s[/tex]

[tex]a_{max}=\omega ^2 A=\frac{kA}{m} ={\frac{25}{1}}*0.03=0.75m/s^2[/tex]

c)

[tex]x=-0.03cos25t[/tex]

[tex]v=0.15sin25t[/tex]

[tex]a=0.75cos25t[/tex]

is this all correct?
