1. Homework Statement
Two blocks of equal mass and negligible volume connected by an ideal spring are set on a horizontal, frictionless surface. Block 1 is flush against a wall. Find an equation for the displacement of each block, in terms of amplitude, angular frequency, and time, if Block 2 has compressed the spring such that both blocks are touching.
