Solution: A block with mass 5.0 kg moves on a horizontal frictionless surface. The block is attached to a horizontal spring that has force constant 90 N/m. As the block moves in simple harmonic motion, its maximum speed is v = 3.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the maximum acceleration of the block during its motion?
