Answer #1

A fisherman's scale stretches 3.5 cmcm when a 2.1 kgkg fish
hangs from it.
Part A
What is the spring stiffness constant?
Express your answer to two significant figures and include the
appropriate units.
Part B
What will be the amplitude of vibration if the fish is pulled
down 3.3 cmcm more and released so that it vibrates up and
down?

A proud deep-sea fisherman hangs a 64.0-kg fish from an ideal
spring having negligible mass. The fish stretches the spring 0.135
m.
(a) Find the force constant of the spring.
N/m
The fish is now pulled down 5.75 cm and released.
(b) What is the period of oscillation of the fish?
s
(c) What is the maximum speed it will reach?
m/s

A 3.90 kg block hangs from a spring with spring constant 1980
N/m . The block is pulled down 5.40 cm from the equilibrium
position and given an initial velocity of 1.80 m/s back toward
equilibrium.
What is the frequency of the motion?
What is the amplitude?
What is the total mechanical energy of the motion?

A mass of 0.500 kg stretches a spring 20.0 cm. Find the force
constant of the spring. If the mass is pulled down an additional
distance of 5.00 cm and then released, find the initial restoring
force, the period, and the total energy of the resulting simple
harmonic motion.
2- Elevator problem with scale (no mass of elevator given). Find
what the scale reads if (a) it goes up at 2m/s, (b) up at 8m/s^2
(c) down at 5m/s^2.

A mass of 0.6 kg stretches spring 12 cm. The mass is pulled down
an additional 5 cm and released. a)Find frequency of oscillation,
b) maximum kinetic energy, and c) total energy at a point 3 cm.
from the equilibrium.

A scale used to weigh fish consists of a spring hung from a
support. The spring's equilibrium length is 10.0 cm. When a 4.0 kg
fish is suspended from the end of the spring, it stretches to a
length of 13.2 cm.
1. What is the spring constant k for this spring?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.
2. If an 8.0 kg fish is suspended from the spring, what will be
the length of the spring? Express your...

A spring with spring constant 10.5 N/m hangs from the ceiling. A
460 g ball is attached to the spring and allowed to come to rest.
It is then pulled down 8.00 cm and released.
What is the time constant if the ball's amplitude has decreased
to 2.70 cm after 31.0 oscillations?

1. Calculate the spring constant ,k, for a spring, if the
spring stretches by 0.2 m as a result of an applied force of
200N.
2. A 20 kg mass is attached to a spring with spring constant,
K=100 N/m. The spring/mass system is stretched by 5cm, and then
released from rest and allowed to oscillate back and forth A.) What
is the amplitude of vibration in this system? B.) Calculate the
acceleration of the mass at X=0.
3. In...

An object of mass 2 kg hangs from a spring of negligible mass.
The sping is extended by 2.5 cm when the object is attached. The
top end of spring is oscillated up and down in simple harmonic
motion with and amplitude of 1 mm. The quality factor, Q, of the
system is 15.
a. What is Wo (undamped frequency) for the system?
b. What is the amplitude of forced oscillation at W = Wo
c. What is the mean...

A 4.00 kg block hangs from a spring, extending it 16.0 cm from
its unstretched position.
(a.) What is the spring constant? = 245 N/m
(b.) The block is removed, and a 0.500 kg mass is hung from the
same spring. If the spring is then stretched and released, what is
its period of oscillation? =.284 sec
(c.) Write the unique equation of motion y(t) for the motion of
the mass in part (b), assuming the mass was initially pulled...
