hello everybody:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

here is my question:

In a physics lab, you attach a 0.200-kg air-track glider to the end of an ideal spring of negligible mass and start it oscillating. The elapsed time from when the glider first moves through the equilibrium point to the second time it moves through that point is 2.60 s.

what is the spring's force constant?

how can i calculate that? how can i get the period ?

do i use the formula? i'm confused between frequency and angular frequency. can u tell me how to use those formulas for this problem.Code (Text):omega = sqrt (k/m)

thanks
