A spring scale being used to measure the weight of an object reads 17.1 N when it is used on earth. The spring stretches 4.40 cm under the load. The same object is weighed on the moon, where gravitational acceleration is 1/6g
Find the reading of the spring scale on the moon.
Find the period for vertical oscillations of the spring on the moon.
CAN YOU PLEASE PROVIDE THE ANSWER WITH WORK? THANK YOU VERY MUCH
if the force on the moon is 1/6 of that than Earth, the readin gwill be 1/6.
Period? Period=2PI sqrt (mass/k)
but k= 17.1/.0440 N/m, mass is 17.1/9.8 kg
