A 1.25 kg ball is attached vertically to a spring with a spring constant of 10.2 N/m. The wooden block is pulled down from rest and then released. What is the initial amplitude of oscillation if the ball's amplitude of oscillation is decreased to 3.40 cm after 40.0 oscillations and the time constant is 37.4 s?

The period of oscillation is, T 27, k 1.25kg 10.2N/m -2(3.14), 2.2s The time taken for 40 oscillation of the ball is, t-40(2.2s) = 88s
