A “seconds” pendulum has a period of exactly 2.000 s—each oneway swing takes 1.000s.(a) What is the length of a second pendulum in Austin, Texas, where g = 9.793 m/s2?(b) If the pendulum is moved to Paris, where g = 9.809 m/s2, by how many millimeters must we lengthen the pendulum?(c) What would be the length of a seconds pendulum

An object with mass 3.0 kg is attached to a spring with spring stiffness constant k = 280N/m and is executing simple harmonic motion. When the object is executing simple harmonic motion, it is moving with a speed of 0.55m/s. (a) Calculate the amplitude of the motion.(b) Calculate the maximum velocity attained by the object.

At t = 0, a 755g mass at rest on the end of a horizontal spring (k = 124 N/m) is struck by a hammer, which gives the mass an initial speed of 2.96m/s. Determine (a) The period and frequency of the motion,(b) The amplitude,(c) The maximum acceleration,(d) The position as a function of time, and (e) The total energy
