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

    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.

    Does the concept of angular momentum ring a bell? You know the initial L in this problem.

    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.

    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.
