Extra Credit Question
Please work on this question by yourself!
A spring of spring constant
k
is attached to the ceiling, and a rope of linear density
λ
kg/m is attached to the spring. In equilibrium, there are
L
meters of rope hanging
from the spring, and the rest of the rope lies in a pile on the ﬂoor. Assume that the

Unformatted text preview: rope is entirely frictionless and ignore the fact that the pile has any ﬁnite size. The system is initially in equilibrium, but now you compress the spring by some additional length d , and then let go. What is (a) the frequency of oscillation of the system and (b) what is the amplitude of the oscillation as a function of time? You can assume that d ± L . pile L k...
