A spring is stretched 5 × 10−2 m by a force of 5 × 10−4 N. A mass of 0.01 kg is placed on the lower end of the spring. After equilibrium has been reached, the upper end of the spring is moved up and down so that the external force acting on the mass is given by F(t...

Conservation of momentum tells you the velocity V' of the block and embedded bullet before the spring gets compressed. 0.010 kg*300 m/s = V' * (2.01 kg) Solve for V'. Energy is conserved during spring compression. (1/2) k X^2 = (1/2) (M+m) V'^2 k is the spring force constant. ...

I am stumped on this homework problem and would like help at least to get me thinking in the right direction: It is a 2-D problem where a spring "plunger" is being used to propel a block forward. More specifically: the block rests against an ideal spring that is being held in...
