A 290 g block is dropped onto a relaxed vertical spring that has a spring constant of k = 2.6 N/cm. The block becomes attached to the spring and compresses the spring 10 cm before momentarily stopping. (a) While the spring is being compressed, what work is done on the block by...

A spring-loaded toy gun is used to shoot a ball of mass m= 1.50 kg straight up in the air. The spring has spring constant k = 667 N/m. If the spring is compressed a distance of 25.0 cm from its equilibrium position y=0 and then released, the ball reaches a maximum height h_max...

A 1kg mass is suspended from a vertical spring with a spring constant of 100 N/m and the equilibrium position is noted. The spring is then pushed upward (compressed) a distance x=10 cm before the mass is released from rest. How fast will the block be moving when it passes ...

In the figure, a 4.3 kg block is accelerated from rest by a compressed spring of spring constant 660 N/m. The block leaves the spring at the spring's relaxed length and then travels over a horizontal floor with a coefficient of kinetic friction μk = 0.260. The frictional ...

Hi could someone please help me answer this question: It requires 0.05 joule of work to stretch a spring from a length of 8 cm to 9 cm and another 0.10 joule to stretch it from 9 cm to 10 cm. Determine the spring constant and find the natural length of the spring. Thank you

A spring gun (k = 26 N/m) is used to shoot a 56-g ball horizontally. Initially the spring is compressed by 17 cm. The ball loses contact with the spring and leaves the gun when the spring is still compressed by 12 cm. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground, 1.3 ...
