A mass is oscillating on a spring with a period of 4.60 s. At t=0 s the mass has zero speed and is at x=8.30cm. What is its acceleration at t=2.50s?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 15, 2022, 7:45 pm ad1c9bdddf
It is assumed the mass is attached to the top end of a vertical spring whose lower end is fixed to a surface (see attached fig). As the spring oscillates up and down about its equilibrium position (position at which the mass will rest when not oscillating) executing simple harmonic motion (SHM), ...
