Professor Graves tries to entertain his cats by tying a plastic mouse to the end of a horizontal spring. He tests the setup, pulling the 0.25 kg mouse 25 cm to the right from equilibrium, then letting go. During this test he notes that over 10 seconds, 18 oscillations were completed. Figuring this would be sufficiently fast, he lets in the cats. What is the position and velocity of the mouse when the cats catch it one second later?
