is angular frequency and angular speed the same thing?
and is maximum speed the same as maximum velocity?
sorry if these may seem like simple questions to you, but i just want to make sure i am doing it right
Angular Frequency = Angular Speed
Maximum Speed =/= Maximum Velocity
Not equal to.

im sorry but i dont know what the =/= sign means? Is equivalent to??
So if a mass at the end of a spring oscillates with a period of 2.8s
and the maximum displacement of the mass from its equilibrium position is 16cm.
how can i determine the maximum speed of the mass if (as i guess) i'm not able to use 2 x pi x f x A for the maximum velocity????????
i have also calculated the amplitude,the angular frequency, the maximum acceleration???????????????
Well maximum velocity occurs at the equilibrium point. Find it's velocity there. Essentially Velocity = Speed are the same for that question. The only difference would be whether you add a - or not to the magnitude and that depends whether it's going to or fro from the equilibrium point. Well, that's what its usually taken as in the SHM questions.
