The displacement of a mass from its equilibrium position as it oscillates on a horizontal spring satisfies the equation \(x(t)= Acos(\omega t + \phi_0)\)

At \(t = 0 s\), what are the two possible values of the x-components of the velocity of the mass (\(v_x\)) in terms of \(v\_{max}\) that are found when \( x = - \frac{A}{2} \), and which value of \(\phi_0\) does each belong to?
