A mass
undergoes an oscillation where the maximum/minimum amplitude is
16.0 m mark and 2.0 m mark on a rule respectively. It was found
that the particle only takes 3.14 s to move from X = 16.0 m to Y =
2.0 m during the oscillations as shown. Determine
the

(a)
amplitude,

(b) period,

(c)
frequency,

(d) angular frequency, of the oscillations.

Q1: run model with different mass m and spring constant k to
explore different amplitude x_{0}, period T, frequency f
and angular frequency ω.

Q2: setup your own initial conditions and test your understanding
of with is the physical meaning of amplitude x_{0}, period
T, frequency f and angular frequency ω.
