## Question:

A body of mass {eq}\rm 1\ kg {/eq} is made to oscillate in turn on springs on force constant {eq}\rm 1,\ 4,\ 9,\ 16\ N/m {/eq}. Deduce the angular frequencies.

## Spring-Mass Systems:

Spring-mass systems, at their simplest form, consist of a single mass connected to an ideal spring. The other end of the spring is connected to a wall. When the mass is perturbed from its equilibrium position, the spring can induce oscillatory motion onto it. The oscillatory motion falls under the category of "simple harmonic motion".
