Two bodies on elastic spring system

  1. Oct 9, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A body of mass M is connected to a vertical spring.Another body of mass m is placed on it.Calculate the amplitude of the oscillation of that system,with the condition that the body m always stays on top of body M(no jumps).No friction.

    2. Relevant equations
    mg=kx
    mgh=0.5kx2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have to lock a solution,so cant make mistakes.
