## Homework Statement

A one-dimensional force F(x)=(3.0N/sqrt(m))*sqrt(x)-(1.0N/m)x acts on an object of mass m = 2.57kg.

a Find the position x0 where the mass is at a stable equilibrium.

b Find the frequency of small oscillations around that equilibrium position. How does this compare to the

frequency if we were to simply ignore the rst term (the square root dependence) in the force?

## Homework Equations

F(x)=0

## The Attempt at a Solution

So for the first part i set F(x)=0 and i got x=0 and x=23.13 but then i did it again and got x=0 and x=64.274 I have noooo idea how they ended up that different. and i'm not even honestly sure how to start b. anything would be helpful.
