A 160 g mass on a 1.0 m-long string is
pulled 6.7o to one side and released.
How long does it take for the pendulum to
reach 2.9o on the opposite side?

The 20 cm-long wrench in the figure
swings on its hook with a period of 0.88 s.
When the wrench hangs from a spring of
spring constant 350 N/m, it stretches the
spring 3.5 cm. What is the wrench's
moment of inertia about the hook?

oscillates in SHM at a frequency of 4.0 Hz.

* What is the spring constant of the spring
on which the head is mounted?

* Suppose the head is pushed 2.0 cm
against the spring, then released. What is
the head's maximum speed as it
oscillates?
