Answer #1

**1)
given
m = 100 g = 0.1 kg
k = 40 N/m
A = 4 cm = 0.04 m
Time period, T = 2*pi*sqrt(m/k)**

**= 2*pi*sqrt(0.1/40)**

**= 0.314 s**

**Total energy of the system, TE =
(1/2)*k*A^2**

**= (1/2)*40*0.04^2**

**= 0.0320 J**

**2) given, L = 2 m**

**Time period of the pendulum on the Earth, T =
2*pi*sqrt(L/g)
= 2*pi*sqrt(2/9.8)
= 2.84 s**

**Time period of the pendulum on the moon, T =
2*pi*sqrt(L/g)
= 2*pi*sqrt(2/1.63)
= 6.96 s**

**3)
given
m = 5 kg
x = 0.25 m
use, F_spring = F_gravity
k*x = m*g
k = m*g/x
= 5*9.8/0.25
= 196 N/m**

**4) f = 10 Hz**

**T = 1/f = 0.1 s**

**we know, T = 2*pi*sqrt(L/g)**

**T^2 = 4*pi^2(L/g)**

**L = g*T^2/(4*pi^2)**

**= 9.8*0.1^2/(4*pi^2)**

**= 0.00248 m**

**5) on planet X64J1**

**use, T = 2*pi*sqrt(L/g)**

**1.8 = 2*pi*sqrt(0.5/g)**

**==> g = 6.09 m/s^2**

**6) use, T = 2*pi*sqrt(L/g)**

**2.2 = 2*pi*sqrt(1.88/g)**

**g = 15.3 m/s^2**

**7) use,**

**T = 2*pi*sqrt(m/k)**

**2 = 2*pi*sqrt(m/50)**

**m = 5.07 kg**

100.0 N/m oscillates on a horizontal frictionless surface with an
amplitude of 8.00 cm.
a) What is the period (in seconds) and frequency of its
motion?
b) Assuming that the object's equilibrium position (i.e. when
the spring is unstretched) is designated as x = 0, and that at t =
