A metal ball attached to a spring moves in simple harmonic motion. The amplitude of the ball's motion is 11.0 cm, and the spring constant is 5.50 N/m. When the ball is halfway between its equilibrium position and its maximum displacement from equilibrium, its speed is 27.2 cm/s.
(a) What is the mass of the ball (in kg)?
(b) What is the period of oscillation (in s)?
(c) What is the maximum acceleration of the ball? (Enter the magnitude in m/s2.)
