Hi,

If i have the period, the amplitude, spring constant and mass of an object attached to a spring in SHM how can i find g?

The spring increaes by 200mm when the mass is attached.

Thanks

Ian

Well just using Hooke's law:

F = kx

mg = kx

g = kx / m

That seems rather oversimplified though. Give it a shot.
