depends on the board ....
Edexcel?
2. the one and only beautiful M6
(AQA M5)
3. at some point all the initial KE will be converted into "stretchy energy"... that will give the longest spring...

a bit more complicated than that as the mass on the spring will never actually stop moving ....

I am very surprised ...
7. Besides energy think about what else is conserved throughout the motion. Plus you know the total initial energy of the system. And what can you write down about the system energy at the extreme radial points of the motion.
8. Just search it on google whatever the topic is...im pretty sure your bound to get a question

Does the concept of angular momentum ring a bell? You know the initial L in this problem.
12. Your thread titles are actually the best. I always get tricked into thinking the OP is a troll of somesort from the chat forums prior to clicking.

If you need a bit more then I realise why your books online have a lot of errors in them.

I thought you were kidding that you couldn't do this AQA M5 type problem.

so rude. Tee Em is just asking for help... are you unable to provide it ?

When you can produce just 10% of what I produce we can have a conversation again ....
good bye kid ...

Duplicate?

Of course I can provide it. I'm a bloody astrophysicist not a plumber. You can solve this problem if you want as a central force orbital problem. Or you can do the basic mechanics that AQA would want you to do.

But I am puzzled that someone with a Maths help website and years of experience is struggling.

And as I said, now I know why there are errors in those books.
