# 00 kg pumpkin oscillates from a vertically hanging light spring once every 0.

5.00 kg pumpkin oscillates from a vertically hanging light spring once every 0.60 s.

(a) Calculate the equation giving the pumpkin's position y (+ upward) as a function of time t, assuming it started by being compressed 9.0 cm from the equilibrium position (where y = 0), and released. (Use the following as necessary: t. Assume t is in s and y is in m.)

y=_________

(b) How long will it take to get to the equilibrium position for the first time?

_______s

(c) What will be the pumpkin's maximum speed?

______m/s

(d) What will be its maximum acceleration, and where will that first be attained?

______m/s2

y = 0.09 *cos(10.472t) b. It will take 0.15s to get the equilibrium position for the... View the full answer
