Preliminary Questions

1.Sketch a graph of the height vs. time for the mass on the spring as it oscillates up and 
down through one cycle. 

 

2.Mark on the graph the times where the mass moves the fastest and therefore has the greatest kinetic energy. 

 

3.Also mark the times when it moves most slowly and has the least kinetic energy.

 

4.On your sketch, label the time(s) when the spring has its greatest elastic potential energy.

 

5.Label the time(s) when it has the least elastic potential energy.

The following might help (it's simple harmonic motion):
