Textbook Problem

If an object–spring system is hung vertically and set into oscillation, why does the motion eventually stop?

To determine
The reason for the eventual stop of the motion of an object-spring system which is hung vertically and set into oscillation.

Explanation

The force of friction is a resisting force, which acts opposite to the relative motion of the surfaces in contact to stop their relative motion. Air resistance is also a resisting force which opposes the motion of an object in a fluid.

The oscillation of the object-spring system also stops due to the damping within the spring. For the object-spring system, the air acts like a fluid which opposes the motion of the system...
