## Simple harmonic motion: amplitude, period and acceleration.

A 0.500-kg mass on a spring has velocity as a function of time given by:
Vx(t)=(3.60 cm/s)*sin[(4.71s^(-1))*t-Pi/2]

A) What is the period of the mass in s?
B) What is the amplitude of the mass in cm?
C) What is the maximum acceleration of the mass in cm/s^2?
