A coil spring is extended by 4.4 cm when it supports a 1.00- N weight. If an identical spring is joined to the end of the first one, what is the extension of the combined spring when it supports the same 1.00- N weight? Assume the spring masses to be negligible
A physics student wants to build a spring gun that when aimed horizontally will give a 35.0- g ball an initial acceleration of 'g' by releasing a spring that has been compressed 18.0 cm. What is the velocity of the ball as it emerges from the gun?
A set of bookshelves rests on a hard floor surface on four legs, each having a cross-sectional dimension of 2.7 5.2 cm in contact with the floor. The total mass of the shelves plus the books stacked on them is 246 kg. Calculate the pressure in pascals exerted by the shelf foot...
