Solution

## The correct option is C The initial phase of the block is π.Block will be at mean position with velocity v0 as the lift stops, and will try to move downwards due to the inertia of motion. and will start executing SHM, with maximum velocity v0. Since natural frequency of the spring is ω0, amplitude of the motion will be v0ω0. Expression for SHM will be v0ω0sinω0t
