Dual Springs

A block of mass M=3 kgM=3\text{ kg} is initially in equilibrium and hanging by 2 identical springs as shown in figure above. If one of the springs is cut from the lower point at t=0t=0, then find acceleration of block in m/s2\text{m/s}^2 at t=0t=0.

Details and Assumptions:

  • Do not consider rotational effects of the block.

  • Take g=10 m/s2g=-10\text{ m/s}^2.

  • Take upward as positive direction
