(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

why does the velocity of an small spring element will be in linear proportion to the distance from the fixed end?

2. Relevant equations

v(x)=[itex]\frac{x}{l}[/itex]V[itex]_{0}[/itex]

Thank you very much,

Tomer
