A cart of mass 250g is placed on a frictionless horizontal air track. A spring having a
spring constant of 19.6 Nm−1 is attached between the cart and the left card of the track.
When in equilibrium, the cart is located 12 cm from the left end of the track. If the card
is displaced 4.5 cm from its equilibrium position, deduce

the mass of sun

mass of sun =
