A block with mass 0.80 kg moves on a horizontal frictionless surface. The block is attached to one end of a horizontal spring and the other end of the spring is attached to the wall. When the block is at x = +0.30 m, its speed is 6.0 m/s and the magnitude of its acceleration is 12.0 m/s2. What is the maximum value for the acceleration of the block during its motion and at what value of x does this occur?
