A 3.05 kg fish is attached to the lower end of a vertical spring that has negligible mass and force constant 880 N/m . The spring initially is neither stretched nor compressed. The fish is released from rest.
What is its speed after it has descended 0.0510 m from its initial position?
What is the maximum speed of the fish as it descends?
