Well, see, I'm not so sure how to start. I'm assuming I'd multiply mass with gravity...? I don't know how to incorporate the lengths.

How is it that you have a homework problem that you don't even know how to start? Did you miss a class? If so, I suggest that you get the notes and learn the material.
