## Question:

A block of mass m=6 kg is suspended vertically from a spring. The time it takes for the block to complete 10 oscillations is 30 s. The amplitude of oscillations is A=15 cm. What is the frequency of the simple harmonic motion? What is the spring constant of the spring?

## Spring Constant:

In physics, the term spring constant is used to represent the characteristics of spring. It represents the relationship between the effecting force on the spring and the displacement of the spring.
