The equilibrium position can be varied in this simulation.  
The spring will try to move back to it's equilibrium position.

The differential equations are: 

\( \frac{dx}{dt} = v \)

\( \frac{dv}{dt} = a = \frac{k x}{m} - \frac{\mu g }{m} \)

here is a friction force between block and the floor, Fr= -mu*m*g;
