The next five questions pertain to the same physical situation.
A block of mass m = 1.5 kg is connected to a spring as shown in the figure. Both the
block and the spring lie on a frictionless horizontal table. The graph plots the x coordinate
of the block versus time. The x coordinate is measured in meters and the time is
measured in seconds. Assume the block undergoes a simple harmonic motion about the
equilibrium extension of the spring marked as x = 0.
1.
What is the amplitude of t
he block’s oscillation?
a.
0m
b.
2m
c.
4m
2.
What is the frequency of the
block’s oscillation?
a.
0.5 s
–1
b.
1 s
–1
c.
2 s
–1
d.
3.14 s
–1
e.
5 s

3.
At which time does the magnitude of the total force applied to the block attain its
minimum?
a.
t = 0.5 s
b.
t = 1.25 s
c.
t = 2 s
d.
t = 2.75 s
e.
t = 3 s
4.
At which time does the kinetic energy of the block attain its maximum value?
a.
t = 0 s
b.
t = 0.75 s
c.
t = 1.5 s
d.
t
= 3 s
e.
t = 3.25 s
5.
Now assume that at time t = 2 s, a block of mass M = 0.5 kg is firmly attached to the
original block. How would the maximum kinetic energy of the two blocks, KE
2
, for t > 2 s
compare to the maximum kinetic energy of the single block m, KE
1
, for t < 2 s?
a.
KE
2
< KE
