The other ends of the strings are attached to the same nail in the ceiling (point P). Mass is initially raised, keeping the string straight, so that the string forms an angle with the vertical, while mass is just hanging from its string (see figure). When mass is released, it hits mass and sticks to it.

A third particle, with mass m, is free to move and is placed on the yaxis, a distance y from the origin. Assuming that the particles are in deep space, so that only the gravitation attraction between them is important: [a] Find the acceleration of the third particle; ); [b] Find its potential energy (take the energy to be zero at [c] Assume that the third mass is passing through the origin with initial velocity in the positive ydirection.
