I have to find the mass of an object. The problem is that my result is a negative one. The problem is as follows: A teacher demonstrates a harmonic motion with an object of mass m0, hung on a wire with constant k. A mass of 1,25g is added to the object, which results in a loss of 2.5% of the original frequency. What is the

1. A spring is compressed 10 cm by pushing a body against it. When released the spring pushes the body towards another identical spring. The body must slide over a rough floor in order to reach the second spring. When it makes contact the body compresses the opposite spring by 8 cm. Once again the body is forced back over the ro

Problem: 3 boxes side by side on a table. (regular size box, larger box, regular size box). The boxes are given a small steady push. Please draw a free body diagram for each box. I am confused as to the paralell friction. Also, why would the boxes not move at all if the push was too small?
