A spring with a spring constant of 1.8 102 N/m is attached to a 1.8 kg mass and then set in motion. What is the period of the mass-spring sys- tem?.

A spring with a spring constant of 1.8 × 102N/m is attached to a 1.8 kg mass and then setin motion.What is the period of the mass-spring sys-tem?Answer in units of s.

Spring constant ( k) = 1.8×10^2 N/m = 180 N/m Mass attached ( m ) = 1.8 kg Period of the system (T ) = sec = 2x(3.14)(= 6.18 x= 6.16×10 sec = 61.6 sec ) secsec
