Homework Help: Spring/mass system

  1. Apr 2, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    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.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've attached all my work -- it would've taken way to much time to [tex]\TeX \mbox{ify}[/tex] all of it. I was wondering if someone could check to make sure my answer's correct.
