NAME: _____________________________________________
Hand in your solutions in class in the lecture period after which the chapter is completed.
Show the equations and calculations, and box your answer. Be sure to include the units.
You are required to solve all problems. Instructor will select and grade any four questions, and
the marks for this HW will be based on these only.

A 0.500-kg object attached to a spring with a force constant of 8.00 N/m vibrates in
simple harmonic motion with an amplitude of 10.0 cm. Calculate (a) the maximum value of its
speed and acceleration, (b) the speed and acceleration when the object is 6.00 cm from the
equilibrium position, and (c) the time interval required for the object to move from x = 0 to x =
8.00 cm.

8 - 11 A 2.00-kg object is attached to a spring and placed on a horizontal, smooth surface. A
horizontal force of 20.0 N is required to hold the object at rest when it is pulled 0.200 m from its
equilibrium position (the origin of the x axis). The object is now released from rest with an initial
position of xi = 0.200 m, and it subsequently undergoes simple harmonic oscillations. Find (8) the
force constant of the spring, (9) the frequency of the oscillations, and (10) the maximum speed
of the object. Where does this maximum speed occur? (11) Find the maximum acceleration of
the object.
