A cannon is rigidly attached to a carriage,which can move along horizontal rails but is connected to a post by a large spring, initially unstretched, of force constant 60000 N/m. The cannon fires a 305 kg projectile at a velocity of 174 m/s directed 38.9◦ above the horizontal.If the mass of the cannon and its carriage is 5537.7 kg, find the recoil velocity of the cannon. Answer in units of m/s
PartB
Determine the maximum extension of the
spring. Answer in units of m
PartC
Find the maximum force the spring exerts on the carriage. Answer in units of N
