3) a) Calculate the unstretched length of a spring, which has a Hooke's constant of 40N/m and is 56cm long when supporting a stationary 800g object. I did mag = kx (0.800)(9.81) = 40x x = 0.20m l-x = u 56-20 = u u = 36cm Is that right? b) The period with which the object would...

A pendulum and a mass spring system are both undergoing simple harmonic motion on Earth (use g = 10 N/kg). It is observed that every time the pendulum goes back and forth, the spring has gone up and down 14 times. If the pendulum has a length of 5 meters and the mass is 100 g...

In Figure 9-62, block 2 (mass 1.3 kg) is at rest on a frictionless surface and touching the end of an unstretched spring of spring constant 160 N/m. The other end of the spring is fixed to a wall. Block 1 (mass 2.1 kg), traveling at speed v1 = 4.0 m/s, collides with block 2, ...
