A proud deep-sea fisherman hangs a 65.0-kg fish from an ideal spring having negligible mass. The fish stretches the spring 0.120 m. (a) Find the force constant of the spring. The fish is now pulled down 5.00 cm and released. (b) What is the period of oscillation of the fish? (c) What is the maximum speed it will reach?

Solution 36E Step 1 : Introduction : In this question, we need to find the force constant of the spring Period of oscillation of the spring Maximum speed reached Data given Mass m = 65 kg Distance x = 0.120 m Final distance x = 5 cm = 0.05 m f
