Homework Help: Physics

Posted by . on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 1:10pm.

Can anyone answer part 3 for me? I've tried so many incorrect answers that I've already given up: 1.00, 1.50, 2.00, 3.00, 9.40

Question: A slingshot obeying Hooke's law is used to launch pebbles vertically into the air. You observe that if you pull a pebble back 2.00 cm against the elastic band, the pebble goes 3.00 m high.

Part A (already answered correctly): Assuming that air drag is negligible, how high will the pebble go if you pull it back 5.00 cm instead? Answer: h = 18.8 m

Part B (already answered correctly): How far must you pull it back so it will reach 13.0 m? Answer: x = 4.16 cm

Part C: If you pull a pebble that is twice as heavy back 3.00 cm, how high will it go? Answer: h = ___ cm
