Hy shivaniWe know that negative of potential energy gradient equals to force acting on it... ie F= - dU/dx... Differentiate the above equation them we get F= - 10x +some constant... From here K=10=mw^2.. We get w =10... Therefore period is pi/5 ... Hope U like it

Dear student,
Please find the attached solution to your problem below.
 
Since, F= – dU/dx
we get F = – 10x + some constant
From here K = 10 = mw^2
We get w = 10
Therefore period of oscillation,T = 2(pi)/w = pi/5
 
Hope it helps.
Thanks and regards,
Kushagra
