# Real mechanical system may involve the deflection of nonlinear springs. In Figure P8.34, a mass m is released a distance

## Question:

Real mechanical system may involve the deflection of nonlinear springs. In Figure P8.34, a mass m is released a distance h above a nonlinear spring. The resistance force F of the spring is given by

F = ? (k_{1}d + k_{2}d ^{3/2})

Conservation of energy can be used to show that

Solve for d, given the following parameter values**:** k_{1} = 50,000 g/s^{2}, k_{2} = 40g/(s^{2?}m^{0.5}), m = 90 g, g = 9.81 m/s^{2}, and h = 0.45 m.
