Ah, yes - you can't solve nonsensical Facebook questions, you must be utterly horrid at mathematics.

omg...
7. I don't get it.
8. 94 views and nothing sensible ...
this question begins to annoy me ...

Energies only if you can handle Lagrangian/Hamiltonian Mechanics ...
12. who is the top dog in mechanics in Forum 38?
13. Could you assume that you get a right angled triangle for the actual length of the spring, with x being the displacement of the particle?

So the hypotenuse is sqrt(x+l)?

Or maybe it is just normal shm with the acceleration having a cosine component and the displacement having a sin component?

I'll have a crack at it on my train home tonight. Do you have a set of numerical answers? And this must be A-level standard right?

A level knowledge still (AQAers have an advantage)

Well that's brilliant because already it looks impossible

Are we talking about M2-M3 knowledge?
