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, where

x = 0


is the equilibrium position and

x > 0

when the spring is stretched. The block is pushed, and the spring compressed, until

xi = −4.00 cm.

It then is released from rest and undergoes simple harmonic motion.

(a)


What is the block's maximum speed (in m/s) after it is released?

  m/s

(b)


How fast is the block moving (in m/s) when the spring is momentarily compressed by 1.40 cm (that is, when

x = −1.40 cm)?

m/s

(c)


How fast is the block moving (in m/s) whenever the spring is extended by 1.40 cm (that is, when passing through

x = +1.40 cm)?

m/s

(d)


Find the magnitude of the displacement (in cm) at which the block moves with one-half of the maximum speed.

|x| =  cm

A 15.3-kg block rests on a horizontal table and is attached to one end of a massless, horizontal spring. By pulling horizontally on the other end of the spring, someone causes the block to accelerate uniformly and reach a speed of 7.81 m/s in 1.75 s. In the process, the spring is stretched by 0.171 m. The block is then pulled at a constant speed of 7.81 m/s, during which time the spring is stretched by only 0.0600 m. Find...

A block of mass 9.1 kg rests on a horizontal frictionless floor, and is connected to a vertical wall by a spring of force constant 205 N/mN/m as shown in the figure. When the spring is in its equilibrium position (neither stretched nor compressed), the block just touches a second lighter block of mass 3.4 kg at rest on the frictionless floor. The spring is now compressed by 0.12 mm (only the heavier mass is moved towards the wall) and...

A block with mass m = 14 kg rests on a frictionless table and is accelerated by a spring with spring constant k = 4399 N/m after being compressed a distance x1 = 0.468 m from the spring’s unstretched length. The floor is frictionless except for a rough patch a distance d = 2 m long. For this rough path, the coefficient of friction is μk = 0.48. 1)How much work is done by the spring as it accelerates the...
