    How can we prove that maximum acceleration of an oscillating system (e.g. spring-block) moving in a simple harmonic motion along the vertical axis is equal to gravitational acceleration?

    Is this homework or an assignment?

    You need to show us what you've worked out so far and/or what's confusing you or stopping you from answering the question.
