Problem: 1. A mass-spring system can oscillate with simple harmonic motion because a compressed or stretched spring has which kind of energy?a. kineticb. gravitational potentialc. mechanicald. elastic potential2. For a system in simple harmonic motion, which of the following is the time required to complete a cycle of motion?a.  amplitudeb. periodc. frequencyd. revolution

FREE Expert Solution

1.

In a simple harmonic motion, the motion starts with all the energy stored in the spring as elastic potential energy. 

As the object starts moving, the elastic potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.
