Problem 4: Is there any mass involved in this problem?

Problem 5: What exactly does " the vehicle will be subject to no more than 5% overshoot" mean?

That is my fault, I did not add the mass to the figure. You can either find it in the textbook or just find the equivalent stiffness of the beam. For problem 5, the maximum overshoot refers to the largest overshoot in the response. This was a transient measure that was discussed in SD&R. It is also covered in the textbook if you need a reminder.
