- Homework Statement
- The problem states that for the vertical spring system below we give boundary conditions to the y positions of m1 and m2, so considering this I have to work out the equations of motion. The ring on the top is supposed to be moving only vertically.

- Relevant Equations
- Lagrange equations of motion

I am trying to solve this and get the equations of motion using the Lagrangian method.

I could do all the steps but the equations (especially the third one) seems..weird.

What am I doing wrong? Sorry if the equations aren't in their simplest form, they are pulled straight from Wolfram Mathematica.

I tried to explain my work in a little more detail below:

Thanks for the help in advance!
