## Homework Statement

A spring is such that it would be stretched 3 in. by a 6 lb. weight. Let the spring first be stretched 4 ins. and then a 12 lb. weight attatched and given an initial velocity of 8 ft/s find out how far the wight will drop.

## Homework Equations

d

^{2}y/dx

^{2}+(k/w)y=o

## The Attempt at a Solution

I can't figure out exactly what they r asking me here- do I get my k from the first sentence making k=24 and w=3/8 and use the the others asy(0)=1/3 and y'(0)=8, or are they asking me to use the 2nd weight and add it to the first and if so, how? is that an added force? I am really confused be the wording of this problem.
