A spring-loaded dart gun is used to shoot a dart straight up into the air, and the dart reaches a maximum height of 12 meters. If the spring is compressed only half as far the second time, how far up does the dart go this time (no friction and using Hooke’s Law on the spring) ...

A 16.0 g bullet is fired horizontally into a 87 g wooden block that is initially at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface and connected to a spring having spring constant 168 N/m. The bullet becomes embedded in the block. The bullet block system compresses the spring by a ...

a mass m= 10kg is hanging from the end of a spring. intially the spring is unstretched when the mass is pushed perfectly downward with an initial velocity of 1 m/s. the spring constant is k=400n/m and the acceleration of gravity is g=9.81m/s^2. find the lowest position that ...

The launching mechanism of a toy gun consists of a spring of unknown spring constant, as shown in Figure P5.33a. If its spring is compressed a distance of 0.140 m and the gun fired vertically as shown, the gun can launch a 24.0 g projectile to a maximum height of 26.0 m above ...
