**Physics - spring balls**

A 275g ball is resting on top of the spring that is mounted on the floor. You exert a force of 325N on the ball and it compresses the spring 44.5cm. If you release the ball from the position, how high above the equilibrium position of the spring-ball system will the ball rise?

In a physics lab experiment, a spring clamped to the table shoots a 18 g ball horizontally. When the spring is compressed 20 cm, the ball travels horizontally 4.9 m and lands on the floor 1.3 m below the point at which it left the spring. What is the spring constant?

the force exerted by a spring increases as the spring stretches. imagine that you attach a heavy object to one end of a spring and then, while holding the springs other end, whirl the spring and object in a horizontal circle. does the spring stretch. explain

A 8.6 kg board is wedged into a corner and held by a spring at a 50.0 angle, as the drawing shows. The spring has a spring constant of 186 N/m and is parallel to the floor. Find the amount by which the spring is stretched from its unstrained length.

A spring oriented vertically is attached to a hard horizontal surface as in the figure below. The spring has a force constant of 1.64 kN/m. How much is the spring compressed when a object of mass m = 2.35 kg is placed on top of the spring and the system is at rest?

**physics help!**

Objects of equal mass are oscillating up and down in simple harmonic motion on two different vertical springs. The spring constant of spring 1 is 155 N/m. The motion of the object on spring 1 has twice the amplitude as the motion of the object on spring 2. The magnitude of the...

**Physics - Spring **

Suppose a 1.5kg block of wood is slid along a floor and it compresses a spring that is attached horizontally to a wall. The spring constant is 555N/m and the block of wood is traveling 9.0m/s when it hits the spring. Assume that the floor is frictionless and the spring is ...
