Question

A student places a 1.200 kg block next to a spring of spring constant k=4960N/m. The system rests is on a frictionless horizontal surface (see figure). The horizontal surface at the top of a building. The distance from the horizontal surface to the ground below is 7.00m. The student pushes the block against the spring until it is compressed a distance 0.100m. The block is then released so that is slides off the edge of the building. Final answers must be to the correct number of significant figures (g=9.8066m/s2 ).

a. What is the initial kinetic energy of the object when it loses contact with the spring

b. What is the initial potential energy of the object

c. Use the results of the previous parts and conservation of energy to calculate the speed of the object when it hits the ground below

Answer #1

hope it helps...

A block of mass m = 4.5 kg is attached to a spring with
spring constant k = 610 N/m. It is initially at rest on an
inclined plane that is at an angle of θ = 29° with respect
to the horizontal, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between
the block and the plane is μk = 0.13. In the
initial position, where the spring is compressed by a distance of
d = 0.19 m, the mass is at...

A 1.55-kg block is launched by a spring and slides along a ramp
as shown. The spring has a spring constant of 1180 N/m and is
compressed a distance, x, before being released. The block slides
up a frictionless ramp of height, H=0.550 m, above where the block
leaves the spring. At the top of the ramp it flies horizontally off
the ramp. Just before leaving the ramp, the kinetic energy of the
block is 8.54 J. After leaving the...

A block of mass m = 0.53 kg attached to a spring with force
constant 119 N/m is free to move on a frictionless, horizontal
surface as in the figure below. The block is released from rest
after the spring is stretched a distance A = 0.13 m. (Indicate the
direction with the sign of your answer. Assume that the positive
direction is to the right.)

wall, and...

Block B of 40.0 kg is sitting at a frictionless horizontal floor
at a height h1 = 40.0 m above the ground, when a second 100.0 kg
block (block A), moving at an unknown speed hits and sticks to
block B. After the collision, the combination slides down a hill
which has friction, with a speed of 2.00 m/s.
A. What was the speed of the block A before the collision?
B. At the end of the path, a very...

A block of mass m = 0.79 kg is attached to a spring with force
constant 123.0 N/m. The block is free to move on a frictionless,
horizontal surface as shown in the figure. The block is released
from rest after the spring is stretched a distance A = 0.10 m to
the right. What is the potential energy of the spring/block system
0.25 s after releasing the block?

A 2.90 kg block on a horizontal floor is attached to a
horizontal spring that is initially compressed 0.0340 m . The
spring has force constant 850 N/m . The coefficient of kinetic
friction between the floor and the block is 0.42 . The block and
spring are released from rest and the block slides along the
floor.
Part A
What is the speed of the block when it has moved a distance of
0.0190 m from its initial position?...

A.Your mass m=11 kg block slides down a frictionless ramp having
angle theta=0.51 radians to the horizontal. After sliding down the
ramp a distance L=16 m the block encounters a spring of spring
constant k=551 N/m. The spring is parallel to the ramp. Use g=9.74
m/s/s for the acceleration of gravity.
Calculate the maximum compression of the spring, in meters.
Include labeled diagrams showing the initial and final
configurations, and a discussion of the solution method based on
energy conservation....

A spring with a spring constant of 302 N/m is initially
compressed by a distance of 0.078 m from its equilibrium position.
A mass of 0.038 kg is then held against the compressed spring and
released from rest while upon a horizontal, frictionless surface.
Assuming that the spring then pushes the mass across the surface,
with speed does the mass leave the spring? Assume proper SI
Units.

A 500-g block is released from rest and slides down a
frictionless track that begins 2.26 m above the horizontal, as
shown in the figure below. At the bottom of the track, where the
surface is horizontal, the block strikes and sticks to a light
spring with a spring constant of 29.5 N/m. Find the maximum
distance the spring is compressed.

platform. From this platform, the...

Two blocks are held together, with a compressed spring between
them, on a horizontal frictionless surface. When the system is
released, the spring pushes the blocks apart and they then move off
in opposite directions. The spring remains behind, and you can
assume that all of its energy is transformed to the kinetic energy
of the blocks. Find the kinetic energy of block A
HomeworkUnanswered The mass of block A is 3.00 times the mass of
block B, and the...
