## Question:

A spring is hung from the ceiling. A 0.300-kg block is then attached to the free end of the spring. When released from rest, the block drops 0.170 m before momentarily coming to rest, after which it moves back upward.

(a) What is the spring constant of the spring?

(b) Find the angular frequency of the block's vibrations.

## Spring Constant:

Usually, the total quantity of force (in term of pull) required to deform the length of spring by one unit is generally represented by the word spring constant. Usually, we use Newton per meter unit to indicate or show up the spring constant of a spring.
