Question

A cart of unknown mass is pushed 3.61 cm against a hoop spring (spring constant 59.00 N/m) and released, just as in the lab experiment. It is observed to roll down the track (after losing contact with the spring) at constant speed v.

A second spring has spring constant 80.00 N/m. If the experiment is
repeated, by what distance should this second spring be compressed
in order for the cart to acquire the same final speed v?

Answer in cm

Answer #1

(1/2) k x2 = (1/2) m v2

Where x is the compressed length, v is the final velocity, k is the
spring constant and m is the mass of the cart.

The experiment is done with two springs with different spring
constants,

In the first case,

(1/2) k1 x12 = (1/2) m v2

In the second case,

(1/2) k2 x22 = (1/2) m v2

In both cases, the final velocity of the cart is the same, We need
to find the compression length x2 for the second case.

We can equate the LHS of both the above equations,

(1/2) k1 x12 = (1/2) k2 x22

k1 / k2 = (x2 / x1)2

x2 = x1 sqrt(k1 / k2 )

x2 = 3.61 x sqrt ( 59.00 N/m / 80.00 N/m)

x2 = 3.10 cm

A cart with mass 271 g, moving on a frictionless linear air
track at an initial speed of 1.08 m/s hits an initially stationary
cart of unknown mass. After the collision, the first cart continues
in its original direction at 0.92 m/s. The collision is
elastic.

A spring with a spring constant of 5000 N/m is compressed 25 cm
by a mass of 2 kg. The mass is released and the spring propels the
mass across the floor. After the mass leaves the spring it
experiences drag on the floor. The kinetic coefficient of friction
between the mass and the floor 0.25.
What is the maximum speed of the cart?
How far does the cart slide before it come to a stop?

0.2 kg mass gets pushed down against a vertical spring with
spring constant k=1000N/m. when the spring is compressed by 10 cm
the object is let go. what is the speed of the object the second
its let go from the spring. (i.e. the spring is at its equilibrium
length) answer in m/s

A block of mass 0.630 kg is pushed against a horizontal spring
of negligible mass until the spring is compressed a distance x. The
force constant of the spring is 450 N/m. When it is released, the
block travels along a frictionless, horizontal surface to point
circled A, the bottom of a vertical circular track of radius R =
1.00 m, and continues to move up the track. The speed of the block
at the bottom of the track is...

A block with a mass m = 2.12 kg is pushed into an ideal spring
whose spring constant is k = 3810 N/m. The spring is compressed x =
0.069 m and released. After losing contact with the spring, the
block slides a distance of d = 2.07 m across the floor before
coming to rest.
