for harmonic oscillator, V(x) = 1/2*m*w^2*x^2. here, the spring can be stretch or compress.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

however, is if the spring can only stretch such that V(x) is infinity for x<0, then find energy level for this setup.

I don't understand the part about spring only being able to stretch. what does that turn equation into? i dunno, any hints?
