We are given the mass
, amplitude
, and period
of a body undergoing Simple Harmonic Motion. Newton's Second Law tells us that
so that
is maximum when
is maximum, that is, when we have
. Thus,
since we have a spring system. We can obtain
from
by
This yeilds a value for
of
and a value of the maximum force of
.
