Lesson Worksheet: Oscillating Springs Physics

In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the instantaneous position, velocity, acceleration, and energy of simple harmonic spring oscillators.


A spring with a spring constant of 255 N/m suspends an object with an unknown mass. The object is pulled downward and then released, after which the suspended object oscillates. The period of the oscillation of the spring-and-object system is 0.0725 s. What is the mass of the object suspended by the spring?
