Question

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 by 0.050 m, and is then thrown to the left. In order for the block to knock over the bottle,it must be thrown with a speed exceeding v0. Ignoring the width of the block, find v0.

Answer #1

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\?<---- 0.080m ---->?

pull block 0.050m right, throw left, oscillates once and knocks
over bottle.

Sounds interesting.

To just knock over the bottle, the spring must attain a potential
energy of

Ep = ½kx² = ½k(0.080m)² = 0.0032m²·k

At x=0.05m, the spring has a potential energy of

Ep = ½k(0.05m)² = 0.00125m²·k

Therefore, it needs to be given a kinetic energy of

Ek = (0.0032m² - 0.00125m²)·k = 0.00195m²·k = ½Mv²

v = sqrt(0.00195m²·2·k/M) = 0.06m·sqrt(k/M)

But we're given that ? = 9.1 rad/s

and we know that ? = sqrt(k/M); so

v = 0.06m·8.9rad/s = 0.534 m/s

A block rests on a horizontal, frictionless surface. A string is
attached to the block, and is pulled with a force of 48.0 N at an
angle θ above the horizontal. After the block is pulled through a
distance of 16.0 m its speed is v = 2.10 m/s, and 40.0 J
of work has been done on it.What is the mass of the block? (Answer
in kg)

A 0.55 kg block rests on a frictionless horizontal
countertop, where it is attached to a massless spring whose
k-value equals 23.0 N/m. Let x be the displacement,

the spring compressed, until

harmonic motion.

A 200.g block on a horizontal, frictionless surface is located
between two unstrained springs. The spring on the left of the block
has a spring constant of 35N/m and the spring on the right has a
constant of 85N/m. a) How much work must be done by an external

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.)

he block in the figure lies on a horizontal frictionless
surface, and the spring constant is 50 N/m. Initially, the spring
is at its relaxed length and the block is stationary at position x
= 0. Then an applied force with a constant magnitude of 4.0 N pulls
the block in the positive direction of the x axis, stretching the
spring until the block stops. When that stopping point is reached,
what are (a) the position of the block, (b)...

A 28 kg block on a horizontal surface is attached to a

forth on a frictionless horizontal surface at a frequency of 4.67
Hz. The amplitude of the motion is 8.53 x 10-2 m. At the point
where the block has its maximum speed, it suddenly splits into two

A 3.30-kg object is attached to a spring and placed on
frictionless, horizontal surface. A horizontal force of 21.0 N is
required to hold the object at rest when it is pulled 0.200 m from
its equilibrium position (the origin of the x axis). The
object is now released from rest from this stretched position, and
it subsequently undergoes simple harmonic oscillations.
