A certain mass is supported by a spring so that it is at rest 0.5 m above a table top. The lowest position of the mass is 0.1 m, and the highest position is 0.9 m. The mass is pulled down 0.4 m at time =0, creating a periodic up and down motion. It takes 1.2 s for the mass to ...

A bungee jumper jumps (with no initial speed) from a tall bridge attached to a light elastic cord (bungee cord) of unstretched length L. The cord first straightens and then extends as the jumper falls. This prevents her from hitting the water! Suppose that the bungee cord ...
