Had to work out the total energy in a mass spring system (Part d of question), which has been found to be:

(v^2*m/4)[sin^2(nt) + sin^2(3nt)]

The next part of the question (e) says to 'Discuss the meaning of your result to part (d) above'

And I have no idea what to write! It is worth nearly 10% of the whole assignment! Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
