Homework Help: Mechanical analysis of a simple object

  1. Jun 7, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    presentation of a component and its mechanical concerns along with some mathematics behind it.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I really have no idea how to even start this but I thought of doing the spring in mechanical pens. I would appreciate any help :)

    Yes, why not?
    If you find it too easy, you can dampen the system and/or you can make the system more complicated by a setup:

    Fixed point
    mass 1
    another spring
    mass 2

    Thanks for the reply! The thing is that it needs to be an object that we use and I cant make a system up. I don't know how to go about the calculation, analysis of the mechanical setup as a whole and possible failures and concerns.
