13.59: a) For SHM, the period, frequency and angular frequency are independent of amplitude, and are not changed. b) From Eq. (13.31), the energy is decreased by a factor of 4 1 . c) From Eq. (13.23), the maximum speed is decreased by a factor of 2 1 d) Initially, the speed at 4 1 A was ; 1 4 15 ωA after the amplitude is reduced, the speed is
