A half-full water tank mounted on the top of a building is modelled as shown below. Find the shear force it can produce?
m = 500 kg
k = 1000 N/m

The Attempt at a Solution
I'm unsure if I should use this method; find T (period of oscillation), use T to find force 'F'.

Or if I should use 'Transfer Matrix Method'. If I should use this method, how should I start?
