Question

A 1.40 kg block slides with a speed of 0.950 m/s on a frictionless horizontal surface until it encounters a spring with a force constant of 734 N/m. The block comes to rest after compressing the spring 4.15 cm. Find the spring potential, U, the kinetic energy of the block, K, and the total mechanical energy of the system, E, for compressions of (a) 0 cm, (b) 1.00 cm, (c) 2.00 cm, (d) 3.00 cm, (e) 4.00 cm

Answer #1

mass of the block=m=1.4 kg

initial speed=v=0.95 m/s

spring constant=k=734 N/m

compression of the spring=x=4.15 cm=0.0415 m

then using the conservation of energy principle

initial kinetic energy of the block=final potential energy of the spring

==>0.5*m*v^2=0.5*k*x^2

potential energy of the spring=0.5*k*x^2=0.5*734*0.0415^2=0.6321 J

kinetic energy oof the block =0.5*mass*speed^2=0.5*1.4*0.95^2=0.63175 J

total mechanical energy of the system=0.6321 J (higher of the two values)(assuming the values given have some inherent errors due to rounding off/significant number due to which the energy values are closer but not equal)

A 2.00 kg block slides on a frictionless, horizontal surface
with a speed of 5.10 m/s, until colliding head-on with, and
sticking to, a 1.00 kg block at rest. A) Find the speed of the
combination after the collision. B) The two blocks continue to
slide together until coming in contact with a horizontal spring and
eventually brought to rest. If the blocks compress the spring 10.0
cm, find the spring constant of the spring. C) How much work did...

The horizontal surface on which the block slides is
frictionless. The speed vi of the block of mass m= 2.0 kg before it
touches the spring is 10 m/s. After the spring is compressed by
0.20 m, the block starts to move back to the right. What is the
velocity vf of the block in m/s when the spring is compressed by
0.15m ?

A 3.0-kg block sliding on a frictionless horizontal surface is
accelerated by a compressed spring. If the 200 N/m spring is
initially compressed 10 cm, determine (a) the potential energy
stored in the spring. As the block leaves the spring, find (b) the
kinetic energy of the block, and (c) the velocity of the block.

m1 = 2.2 kg block slides on a frictionless horizontal surface

spring unextended.

A 28 kg block on a horizontal surface is attached to a
horizontal spring of spring constant k = 4.8 kN/m. The block is
pulled to the right so that the spring is stretched 7.2 cm beyond
its relaxed length, and the block is then released from rest. The
frictional force between the sliding block and the surface has a
magnitude of 37 N. (a) What is the kinetic energy of the block when
it has moved 1.6 cm from...
