Question #60176

A small block of mass m is kept on a bigger block of

mass M which is attached to a vertical spring of spring

constant k as shown in the figure. The system oscillates

vertically. (a) Find the resultant force on the smaller

block when it is displaced through a distance x above

its equilibrium position. (b) Find the normal force on the

smaller block at this position. When is this force smallest

in magnitude ? (c) What can be the maximum amplitude

with which the two blocks may oscillate together ?
