**A mass 'm' is dropped from a spring with constant 'k'. find the time it takes to reach equilibrium.**

im pretty sure i can use this eqn

T = 2*PI*sqrt(m/k)

2)

**find the tension at the lowest point of the pendulum, with length L and mass M.**

there will be zero work done by tension at the bot, it is at a r. angle. im thinking you have to use k + U = k_0 + U_0 for conservation of mechanical energy, but i was also thinking of using the y component of the problem.

T - m*g = a * m

a = v^2 / r

T = m*g + m*(v^2/r)

v = omega*r and omega = sqrt (g/L)

T = m*g +(m*g) / L

T = m*g +(m*g) / L

this dosnt seem right
