Question

A body performs simple harmonic motion in a straight line. Its velocity is 12 m/s when the displacement is 50 mm, and 3 m/s when the displacement is 100 mm, the displacement being measured from the mid - position. Calculate the frequency and amplitude of the motion. What is the acceleration when the displacement is 75 mm?
