Homework Help: Oscillating buoy

  1. Aug 8, 2004 #1
    Hello you guys. I'm trying to solve part B of the problem:

    http://www.anu.edu.au/Physics/IPhO/Q3.ps

    about a floating buoy. Is the resulting differential equation something like

    4/3 (2*pi*a^2*l*d) z'' = - (2*asin(alpha)*l*rho*g) z

    Is this correct? Thanks very much!
