connected with a massless spring of constant k. The coupled
oscillator is kept against a wall with block B in contact with the
wall whereas block A is pushed towards the wall by a distance d
and at t =0, the block A is released. (The natural length of spring is

In an experiment to determine the Young’s modulus
of a metal, two identical wires are suspended using a
vernier arrangement as shown in figure. The left wire
is held taut with a fixed mass. Different loads can be
applied to the right wire and stretching of the wire
can be measured by using the vernier scale attached
to the wire on right. The test wire has a length of 2.2
m between support and vernier and a uniform
diameter of 0.42 mm. Take g =10ms
