A block of mass m = 5.2 kg is released from rest at a height of H = 4.0 m on a curved frictionless ramp. At the foot of the ramp is a spring whose spring constant is k = 192.0 N/m. What is the maximum compression of the spring, x?
After the spring reaches its maximum compression, it pushes the block backwards. What is the maximum height reached by the block?


  • Physics -

    PE ->KE
    KE ->PE(spring) =>
    PE= PE(spring)

    PE(spring) -> KE->PE => the same ‘h’
    (due to the absence of friction)
