1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I attached a picture of the problem given. In my physics class we never work with numbers we always work with variables. Here is a link as well. http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a133/TOmaynardOL/IMG_0001-1.jpg 2. Relevant equations I have yet to tackle this problem, but I am thinking about using the total work equations. (kinetic, potential, work due to spring etc) 3. The attempt at a solution As stated above, not yet done, but working on an approach before I go head first going about it all wrong. Thanks in advance!
