Spring 2016 - Exam I Study Questions

Dr. Quinn,

On Spring 2012--Exam 01 problem 2, can you give me some guidance on part c. I am struggling to derive the motion as a function of time. It gives X0 = 0 m. And since the systems starts from rest, the initial velocity is 0 m/s. When I solve, it seems like everything goes to zero, except the particular solution (mg*sin(phi)/(3*k)). I’ll try to attach what I have so far.
