Homework Help: Finding the force of reaction as a function of time

  1. Oct 1, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    the only part of the question im unsure about is finding the force of reaction as a function of time


    2. Relevant equations
    F=Ma
    F=-Kx


    3. The attempt at a solution

    F=Ma
    F=M(Dv/Dt)

    F Dt= M Dv

    i integrate force with respect to time from final time=t and initial time = 0

    integrating M with respect to velocity from final velocity=V and initial velocity=0

    I get F(t)=MV

    is this the correct way to get the force as a function of time?
