Homework Help: What is the oscillation frequency?

  1. Apr 21, 2009 #1
    What is mass and speed of the ball?

    A spring with spring constant 17 N/m hangs from the ceiling. A ball is attached to the spring and allowed to come to rest. It is then pulled down 7.5 cm and released. The ball makes 16 oscillations in 22 s seconds.

    1) What is its the mass of the ball? (in g)
    2) What is its maximum speed? (in cm/s)
