    .hello professor,
    can please look at the solution of number 5 in the attach file. i am little confuse how they get m=mg/g were mg=2 and g=9.8 so how they got 1/16.

    I think you have to convert g=9.8m/s to g=32 ft/s since its using inches so it becomes m=2lb/32 ft/s =1/16

    From the equilibrium position, the mass was pulled down 3 inches, which is 1/4 ft.

    Also, it was just released so that the initial velocity is 0.
