# Mass m1 is attached to a spring. A person compresses the spring so that when released it oscillates with angular frequency 12 rad/s. The first mass is removed and replaced with another mass m2. (The spring remains the same.) When the spring is compressed and set into motion the new anguar frequency is 3 rad/s. what is the ratio of m2/m1?
