1. A researcher observes and records the height of a weight moving up and down on the end of a spring. At the beginning of the observation the weight was at its highest point. From its resting position, it takes 8 seconds for the weight to reach its highest position, fall to its lowest position, and return to its resting position. The difference between the lowest and the highest points is 20 in. Assume the resting position is at y = 0.
2. At an ocean depth of 20 meters, a buoy bobs up and then down 2 meters from the ocean's depth. Four seconds pass from the time the buoy is at its highest point to when it is at its lowest point. Assume at x = 0, the buoy is at normal ocean depth.
