Problem P. 3796. (April 2005)
P. 3796. On a slope of height h a small body is sliding down without friction. It is connected to a point P at the bottom of the slope with a push-and-pull spring of an elastic constant of D, which was initially not extended. The body just stops at the bottom of the slope. What can the slope angle be? What is the acceleration when the body of mass m starts sliding back?
