A 2.5-kg block is sliding along a rough horizontal surface and collides with a horizontal spring whose spring constant is 320 N/m. Unstretched, the spring is 20.0 cm long. The block causes the spring to compress to a length of 12.5 cm as the block temporarily comes to rest. ...

Physics
Two masses are connected by a string over an ideal pulley as shown. The coefficient of kinetic friction between m1 and the table surface is 𝜇. Find an expression for their common speed after the blocks have moved a distance L. You can assume that you know: m1, m2, L, ...

Physics
A box is pushed down an incline from point A to point B by a force F (and also under the influence of its weight). The distance from A to B, along the ramp, is 5.0 m. The force F is parallel to the incline, as shown, and has a magnitude of 2.0 N. The force of kinetic friction ...

Physics
A projectile is launched at an angle of 34.0o above the horizontal. The projectile has a mass of 1.50 kg and is given an initial speed of 20.0 m/s. a) What is the initial kinetic energy of the projectile? b) By how much does the gravitational potential energy of the projectile...

Physics
A pendulum consists of a swinging mass hanging from a massless string. The hanging mass is 2.0 kg and the string is 400.0 cm long. If the mass has a speed of 8.0 m/s when it passes the lowest point of its swing, a) what is the speed when the string makes an angle of 60.0o with...

Physics
A block of mass 12.0 kg is initially sitting at rest on a 30.0o incline. There is a spring mounted to the ramp with spring constant k = 13500 N/m. The block is released to slide down the incline and comes to a stop momentarily after the spring has been compressed a distance ...

Physics
A 2.50 kg fireworks shell is fired straight up from a mortar and reaches a height of 110. m. (a) Neglecting air resistance (a poor assumption, but we will make it for this example), calculate the shell’s velocity when it leaves the mortar. (b) The mortar itself is a tube ...
