# Find amplitude based on the conservation of total energy

A 0.50-kg mass is attached to a spring with a spring constant of 20 N/m along a horizontal, frictionless surface. The object oscillates in simple harmonic motion and has a speed of 1.5 m/s at the equilibrium position. What is the amplitude of vibration?

#### Solution Preview

m = 0.5kg

k = 20 N/m

v = 1.5m/s

At equilibrium pt the spring is not stretched or compressed, hence the entire energy in the ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution provides detailed explanation how to find amplitude based on the conservation of the total energy.
