# Answer to Question #182203 in Mechanical Engineering for luke

Question #182203

A spring extends by 5 centimeters when loaded vertically with 2.5kg of weight. A new weight of 2kg was attached to it and was displaced 6cm from its new equilibrium position and was released from rest. How long will it take for the mass to return to its point of release for the second time in seconds?

"m \n_\n1\n\n\u200b\t\n\n =2.5kg\\\\\n\nF \n_\n1\n\n\u200b\t\n\n =2.5\u00d79.81= 24.525N\\\\\n\nx \n\n_1\n\n\u200b\t\n\n =5cm=0.05m"

"k = \\dfrac{F_1}{x_1} =\\dfrac{2.5\u00d79.81}{0.05}= 490.5N\/m"

"m_n = 2kg"

"x_n = 0.06 m"

"k_n =\\dfrac{F_n}{x_n} =\\dfrac{2\u00d79.81}{0.06}= 327N\/m"

frequency of vibration "= \\dfrac{1}{2\u03c0}\\sqrt{\\dfrac{k_n}{m_n}}"

"= \\dfrac{1}{2\u03c0}\\sqrt{\\dfrac{327}{2}}= 2.035\\ Hz"
