    A block of mass is attached to the end of an ideal spring. Due to the weight of the block, the block remains at rest when the spring is stretched a distance from its equilibrium length. The spring has an unknown spring constant.

    A. What is the spring constant?
    B. Suppose that the block gets bumped and undergoes a small vertical displacement. Find the resulting angular frequency of the block's oscillation about its equilibrium position.
