Two identical springs (neglect their masses) are used to “play catch” with a small block of mass 100 g (Fig. 5.37). Spring A is attached to the floor and compressed 10.0 cm with the mass on the end of it (loosely). Spring A is released from rest and the mass is accelerated upward. It impacts the spring attached to the ceiling, compresses it 2.00 cm, and stops after traveling a distance of 30.0 cm from the relaxed position of spring A to the relaxed position of spring B as shown. Determine the spring constant of the two springs (same since they are identical).
Answer to relevant QuestionsA 200-g ball is launched from a height of 20.0 m above a lake. Its launch angle is 40o and it has an initial kinetic energy of 90.0 J. (a) Use energy methods to determine its maximum height above the lake surface. (b) Use ...A block on a level frictionless surface has two horizontal forces applied, as shown in Fig. 5.28. (a) What force F2 would cause the block to move in a straight line to the right? (b) If the block moves 50 cm, how much work ...Rockets used in the space program are generally multistage— that is, they have stacked stages, each with its own engine and propellant. Starting with the bottom, the stages are jettisoned when they have run out of fuel. ...If a 60-kg woman is riding in a car traveling at 90 km/h, what is her linear momentum relative to (a) The ground and (b) The car? A ball of mass 200 g is released from rest at a height of 2.00 m above the floor and it rebounds straight up to a height of 0.900 m. (a) Determine the ball’s change in momentum due to its contact with the floor. (b) If ...
