A. 15 kg
B. 10 kg
C. 20 kg
D. 25 kg

  1. 1. Mass = 10cm/5cm * 5kg =

    2. k = 35/0.25cm =

    3. M*g = 2 * 9.8 = 19.6 N. applied.
    Spring A: Disp. = 19.6N * 1m/5N = 3.92 m.

    M*g = 10 * 9.8 = 98 N. applied.
    Spring B: Disp. = 98N * 1m/9N = 10.9 m.

  2. 1. C - 12.8
    2. B - 32 N/m
    3. A - 31 cm
    4. A - Spring B has a larger displacement than spring A.
    5. C - 0.456 N
    6. B - 10 kg
    7. B - 82.4 cm
    8. C - 25 N/m
    9. A - 25 N
    10. B - 86 m/s^2
