Original project A bead attached to a spring and confined to move along a wire

This is a famous mathematical modeling problem.

A bean attached one end of the spring with free force length L0 and spring constant k.

It is also confined to move along a wire.

The height of the wire can be adjusted if you drag the left end up/down.

The tilt angle of the wire can be adjusted if you drag the right end up/down.

The force and velocity vectors are shown with blue/red arrows.

Phase diagram of vx-x is shown in the right plotting region.
