## Question:

A 2.00-kg frictionless block attached to an ideal spring with force constant 315 N/m is undergoing simple harmonic motion. When the block has displacement +0.200 m, it is moving in the negative {eq}\textit{x} {/eq}-direction with a speed of 4.00 m/s.

Find (a) the amplitude of the motion; (b) the block's maximum acceleration; and (c) the maximum force the spring exerts on the block.

## Spring:

In physics, The spring is a mechanical device which stores the energy on being in the state of compression. This stored energy is used to work as like lift the object with the help of spring.
