A block on the end of a horizontal spring is pulled from equilibrium at x = 0 to x = A and released. Through what total distance does it travel in one full cycle of its motion? (a) A/2 (b) A (c) 2A (d) 4A

To determine
The total distance travelled in one full cycle of the given horizontal spring.

Explanation

One complete cycle consists of motion from x=A to x=A and again reaching back to the original position x=A . Initially the block is at the equilibrium position x=0 . From the equilibrium position the block is pulled to the position x=A
