Two objects of masses 28 kg and 21 kg are hung from the ends of a stick that is 70 cm long and has marks every 10 cm, as shown.
If the mass of the stick is negligible, at which of the points indicated should a cord be attached if the stick is to remain horizontal when suspended from the cord?
A simple harmonic oscillator consists of a mass on a horizontal spring, oscillating with an amplitude A and negligible friction. What is the distance of the mass to the equilibrium position (x = 0) at the instant when the kinetic and potential energies are equal?
