Problem 16.8: What is the maximum speed of the hanging mass?

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The animation shows the analogy between circular motion (coin on turntable) and simple harmonic motion (hanging mass on a spring). Given the above animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds), what is the maximum speed of the hanging mass? Restart.
