If I have a spring connected to a roof with a natural length of l, then the spring potential at any point can be given as
Assuming the datum is at the roof.
If the datum is at the natural length of the spring then the equation is
The trouble I have is to dertmine c. Could anyone give some tips on that?
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
