A cork gun contains a spring whose spring constant is 11.0 N/m. The spring is compressed by a distance DX = 9.8 cm and used to propel a cork of mass 6.60 g from the gun. Assuming the cork is released when the spring passes through its equilibrium position (Xeq), what is the ...

an athlete stretches a spring an extra 40.0 cm. how much energy has he transferred to the spring, if the spring constant is 5286.0 N/m? Us= 1/2kx^2 =1/2(5286.0)(.40)=1057.2 J Thanks!

A .20 kg ball is attached to a vertical spring. The spring constant is 28 N/m. The ball is supported initially so that the spring is neither stretched or compressed, is released from rest. How far does the ball fall before brought to a momentary stop by the spring? Our teacher...
