Mass-Spring System - Mar 7, 2013 at 10:34PM

I am a student of physics, and I'm developing an application that involves a vertical mass-spring system, but there are two problems in my simulation.  
1 - When I change the elastic constant of the spring, the energy is not conserved. There isn't any variable for this.
2 - The spring's support swings along with the movement of the mass-spring.
How can I fix these problems?
