Solution

## The correct option is C Time period of oscillation is 2π√mkWhen elevator is at rest, mg = kx0−(1) Apply pseudo of ma. The mean position shifts downwards such that the distance between initial and new equilibrium positions is amplitude of oscillation A. k(x0+A)=mg+ma∴A=mak−−(2) Net restoring force when the block is x units below the mean position = - k (x0+A+x) + mg + ma = - kx ∴−k x=ma=−mω2x∴ω=√km∴T=2πω=2π√mk.
