i'll have a shot at it once you post the question, can't really help you without it!
when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

4. (a) Force exerted by spring = force due to gravity on mass.

Hence

 F=mg

(b) (i) Use Hookes Law  F=-ky to find the spring constant k(in N/m) from  mg=-ky

where y is the initial extension 40mm. The UNBALANCED force is then calculated from  F=ky
where y is the second extension 30mm.

(ii)  m \frac {d^2y} {dt^2} =-ky hence  \frac {d^2y} {dt^2} = -\frac {k} {m} y

hence  w=\sqrt {\frac {k} {m}} hence  T=\frac {2\pi} {w} = 2\pi \sqrt{\frac {m} {k}}
Nothing!!!!!!!!
