Answer to Question #1664 in Mechanics | Relativity for inah
A 46.0-kg penguin on frictionless ice holds onto the end of a horizontal spring with spring constant 170 N/m and oscillates back and forth. What is its period of oscillation? Answer in seconds.
According to the mass-period expression:
T = 2π √ (m/k) = 2*3.14 √ (46/170) = 3.26 s
