A mass m connected to a spring of spring constant k is initially displaced a distance x 0 from its equilibrium position. Using dimensional analysis , determine a relation between the maximum velocity v max of the mass during its oscillation and the quantities m , k , and x 0 . Note: [ k ]=kg/s 2 A. v max x 0 ( k / m ) B. v max x 0 k m C. v max = x 0 ( k / m ) 1/2 D. v max x 0 ( k / m ) 1/2 E. v max x 0 ( m / k ) 1/2 m k x 0
