Spring mass system:
k = 16 N/m    and  m = 1.0 kg
Amplitude A = 0.20 m
Let x be the compression of the spring at a time instant t.  x is the displacement of mass m from its mean position.

F = restoration force on the mass exerted by the spring = - k x
= m a  = equation of motion of the mass
=  m (- ω² x ) = - m ω² x                for a Simple harmonic motion.
=>  ω = √(k/m)
angular frequency = ω = √(16/1.0) = 4 rad/sec
==========================
2.    total energy of the mass is conserved.
E = elastic PE + KE = 1/2 k x² + 1/2 m v²
when x = A = amplitude, velocity is 0  (at the extreme position of oscillation).
E = 1/2 k A² = 1/2 * 16 * 0.20² = 0.32 Joules

hence,  the expression :  1/2 m v² = 0.32 - 1/2 k x²
v² = 0.64 - 16 x²
v = √[0.64 - 16 x² ]
v at x = 0.1 m is    √(0.64 - 0.16) = 0.6928 m/sec
============================
3.    The energy = 1/2 k A² = 0.32 Joules    calculated above in part (2)
