(part 1 of 3) 10.0 points
A weight suspended from a spring is seen to
bob up and down over a distance of 19 cm
twice each second.
What is its frequency?
Correct answer: 2 Hz.
Explanation:
Let :
n
= 2
.
freq =
2 bobs
1 second
=
2 Hz
.

What is its period?
Correct answer: 0

5 s.
Explanation:

(part 3 of 3) 10.0 points
What is its amplitude?
Correct answer: 9
.
5 cm.
Explanation:
Let :
d
= 19 cm
.
The amplitude is the distance from the
equilibrium position to maximum displace

The oscillation of a massspring system
x
=
x
m
cos(
ω t
+
φ
)
,
where
x
m
is a positive number.
At time
t
= 0, the mass is at the equilibrium
point
x
= 0 and it is moving with positive
velocity
v
0
.
What is the phase angle

9.
φ
=
π
Explanation:
Since the initial position is
x
= 0, we know
that cos(
φ
) = 0, so
φ
=

The velocity can be found as
v
=
d x
dt
=

ω
sin(

φ
)
.
At
t
= 0 we have
v

0, so
the solution is
