Question

A horizontal block spring oscillator of mass 10 kg on a frictionless table and spring constant k=1000 N/m is pulled 1 m to the right and released:

a) Find at t=3 sec: angular frequency, frequency, period, position, velocity, acceleration, and force on block

b) Draw the acceleration function of the block over two periods

Step 1

Let m be the mass of the block, and k be the spring constant of the spring. Assume x to be the motion described by the block as a sinusoidal function as below. help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosem 10 kg k =1000 N/m x(tAsin t fullscreen
