1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This question is beyond my level, I am doing this for bonus marks. I am unaware of how to do it, I am merely requesting a formula, or a series of steps to help me. I have not yet done calculus. Imagine that a 1 kg box is falling from a height of 5.2 m, with 4 springs attached to its bottom. What is the reduced force on the box within the first instant of impact due to the springs? Please make up various needed variables, such as the spring amplitude, if needed to aid in explanation. 2. Relevant equations Unaware of EQn's. 3. The attempt at a solution Lack thereof explained above.
