A 1200-kg car rolling on a horizontal surface has a speed v= 65km/h when it strikes a horizontal coiled spring and is brought to rest in a distance of 2.2 m. What is the spring stiffness constant of the spring?

  • physics -

    KEcar=PEspring
    1/2 m v^2= 1/2 k x^2
    solve for k.

  • physics -

    8.1*10^4

  • physics -

    PE=1/2kx
    8.1x10^4
