Find the period of low-amplitude vertical vibrations of the system shown. The mass of the block is m. The pulley hangs from the ceiling on a spring with a force constant k. The block hangs from an ideal string.
Fel = K.x
Fr = m.a
The Attempt at a Solution
This kind of problem is difficult for me, because I don't understand very well the "geometry" of the problem. When the block falls a distance "x", what is the compression of the spring? Please, could anyone help me ?
