# A Particle of mass 0.3 kg  is subjected to a force with   What will be its initial acceleration if it is released from a point  20 cm away from the origin ? Option 1) Option 2) Option 3) Option 4)

As we learnt in

Spring force -

$F= -Kx$

- wherein

$K=\left | \frac{F}{x} \right |= \frac{N}{m}$

$F=\: -\: k\: x$

$or \: \: \: F= -15\times \left ( \frac{20}{100} \right )= -3 N$

Initial acceleration is over come by retarding force.

$or \: \: \: m\times \left ( acceleration\: a \right )= 3$

$or \: \: \: a= \frac{3}{m}= \frac{3}{0.3}= 10ms^{-2}$

Correct option is 2.

Option 1)

Option 2)

This is the correct option.

Option 3)
