Example 13.2) By attaching a spring balance to the free end and pulling toward the right, a force of 6.0 N causes a displacement of 0.030 m. a) Find the spring constant. We attach a 0.50 kg glider to the end and pull it a distance of 0.020 m and release it. b) Find the angular frequency, frequency, and period of the
