A 2.6-kg particle moving along the x axis has a velocity of +1.7 m/s as it passes through the origin. It is subjected to a single force, Fx, that varies with position, as shown below.
The 10 kg block shown is released from rest on the horizontal surface at point B, where the spring has been stretched a distance of 0.5 m from its neutral position A. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the plane is 0.30. Calculate (a) the velocity v of t...
