Question

A) A mass on a spring vibrates in simple harmonic motion at a frequency of 4.0 Hz and an amplitude of 8.0 cm. If a timer is started when its displacement from equilibrium is a maximum (hence x = 8 cm when t = 0), what is the displacement of the mass when t = 3.7 s?

B) A mass of 4.0 kg, resting on a horizontal, frictionless surface, is attached on the right to a horizontal spring with spring constant 30 N/m and on the left to a horizontal spring with spring constant 50 N/m. If this system is moved from equilibrium, what is the effective spring constant?

C) A mass of 0.40 kg, attached to a spring with a spring constant of 80 N/m, is set into simple harmonic motion. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the mass when at its maximum displacement of 0.050 m from the equilibrium position?

D) A pendulum on the Earth has a period *T*. The
acceleration due to gravity on Mars is less than that on the Earth,
