    Mass of the rod M = 3.0 kg
    mass of the block m = 0.5 kg
    length of the rod l = 1.25 kg
    center of gravity of the rod from the end B (lg) = l/2 = 0.625 m

    In equilibrium, let the rod makes an angle Qo with the horizontal,
    moment about the end B = 0
    => k*(Qo*0.75)*0.75 = M*g*0.625 + m*g*1.25 ......(1)

    Let when the end A is pulled down by a distance delta_0 (Do), the rod makes an ...
