    Suppose a mass on a spring is vibrating up and down with amplitude of 5.0 cm and a frequency of 0.80 Hz.

    (A) What is the angular speed w of the system?

    (B) Describe the motion of the mass in the form

    y = A sin (wt)

    (In other words, put in the values for A and w)

    (C) What is the maximum velocity of the mass, and what is the value of y when this occurs?
