Question

A 2.24-kg object on a frictionless horizontal track is attached to the end of a horizontal spring whose force constant is 5.00 N/m. The object is displaced 3.60 m to the right from its equilibrium position and then released, initiating simple harmonic motion.

(a) What is the force (magnitude and direction) acting on the object 3.50 s after it is released?
