An astronaut measures her mass by means of a device consisting of a chair attached to a large spring. Her mass can be determined from the period of the oscillations she undergoes when set into motion. If her mass together with the chair is 172 kg, and the time required for her to undergo 10 full oscillations is 27.0 seconds, what is the spring constant?
