104. (a) The graph makes it clear that the period is T = 0.20 s. (b) The period of the simple harmonic oscillator is given by Eq. 15-13: =2 T m k π . Thus, using the result from part (a) with k = 200 N/m, we obtain m = 0.203 0.20 kg. (c) The graph indicates that the speed is (momentarily) zero at t = 0, which implies that the block is at x 0 = ± x m . From the graph we also note that the slope of the velocity curve (hence, the acceleration) is positive at t = 0, which implies (from ma = –
