Question

A block of mass m = 1.5 kg is attached to a massless, frictionless vertical spring and stretches the spring by an amount y0 = 0.15m

a)find the spring constant k of the spring

b) the block is then pulled down by an additional 0.05m below its equilibrium position and is released. express the position of the block during its resulting simple harmonic motion using the equation y(t) = ymcos(wt+@).

c) find the maximum acceleration fo the block A(m).

d) find the total energy of the system of the block, spring and earth at the lowest point of the motion of the block. set the gravational potential energy of the block equal to zero at the midpoint of its motion

Answer #1

a) let spring constant be k

kx = mg

=> k *0.15 = 1.5 * 10

=> k = 100 N/m

b) ym = 0.05 m

angular velocity = k/m = 8.16 rad/s

equation = 0.05 cos(8.16 t)

c) acceleration = d^{2}(0.05 cos(8.16 t)) / dt =
(8.16)^{2} * 0.05 cos(8.16 t)

max acceleration = (8.16)^{2} * 0.05 =
3.329 m/s^{2}

d) spring potential energy = 1/2 k x^{2} where x is
total elongation = 0.15 + 0.1 = 0.25

= 1/2 * 100 * 0.25^{2} = 3.125 J

gravitational potential energy = - m g h = - 1.5 * 10 * 0.05 =-0.75 J

kinetic energy of block at lowest poin t = 0 since velocity = 0

total energy = spring potential energy + gravitational potential energy+ kinetic energy of block = 2.375 J

A 0.019 kg block on a horizontal frictionless surface is
attached to a string whose spring/force/elastic constant k is 120
N/m. The block is pulled from its equilibrium position at x=0 m to
a displacement x=+0.080 m and is released from rest. The block then
executes simple harmonic motion along x-axis (horizontal). When the
displacement is x=0.051 m, what is the kinetic energy of the block
in J?

A block rests on a frictionless horizontal surface and is
attached to a spring. When set into simple harmonic motion, the
block oscillates back and forth with an angular frequency of 8.9
rad/s. The drawing shows the position of the block when the spring
is unstrained. This position is labeled ''x = 0 m.'' The drawing
also shows a small bottle located 0.080 m to the right of this
position. The block is pulled to the right, stretching the spring...
