Two strings with identical mass densities and tensions are attached in the middle by a mass m, an incident pulse is traveling from the left, I need to find the equations of motion for the string on the right.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The pulse is y=Aexp[i(kx-wt)]

work so far:

the mass will act as a moving boundry condition because of the verticle component of the string. So i have m(d^2y/dt^2)=-T dy/dt, i am having trouble in where to go next, can anyone help?
