Homework Help: Physics Block and ramp

Posted by Casey on Monday, June 6, 2011 at 6:28pm.

A crate of mass 0.812 kg is placed on a rough incline of an angle 35.3 degrees. Near the base of the incline is a spring of spring constant 1140 N/m. The mass is pressed against the spring a distance x and released. It moves up the slope 0.169 meters from the compressed position before coming to a stop. If the coefficient of kinetic friction in 0.195, how far (m) was the spring compressed?

The correct answer is 0.0417 but I get .0369.

My work:

d=kx^2m/2mgsin35.3
.169m = ((1140 Nm)(x^2))/(2(.812 kg)(9.8 m/s^2)(.5778)

(.169m)(9.1967) = 1140 N/m(x^2)

x = sqr root .00136
= .0369
