Problem 1:(20 points) A. lb. weight hangs from linear spring as shown in Figure XA below At
equilibrium, thespring stretched Winch by the weight.
a. Calculate the stiffness of the spring.
b. What the frequency at which the weight will vibrate up and down ifth spring stretched
and then released?
Give formula for the oscillation frequency in which neither the mass nor the spring constant
Figure Mass suspended Ninear spring fromo fixed block
