Question

A spring of negligible mass and force constant *k* = 410
N/m is hung vertically, and a 0.210 kg pan is suspended from its
lower end. A butcher drops a 2.4 kgsteak onto the pan from a height
of 0.50 m . The steak makes a totally inelastic collision with the
pan and sets the system into vertical SHM.

a) What is the speed of the pan and steak immediately after the collision?

b) What is the amplitude of the subsequent motion?

c) What is the period of that motion?

Answer #1

velocity v of the steak:

v = ?(2gh) = ?(2*9.81*0.25) = 2.215 m/s

velocity pan + steak is

v = m1v1/(m1+m2) = 2.5*2.215/(2.7) = 2.050 m/s

---------

2)

old equilibrium point: x = F/k = 0.2*9.81/420 = 0.00467 m below the
end of the relaxed spring

new equilibrium point: x = F/k = 2.7*9.81/420 = 0.063 m below the
end of the relaxed spring.

let the motion start at the new equilibrium point. In fact it
starts 6 cm above this point.

---------

3).

initial kinetic energy of pan + steak = spring energy

1/2 mv^2 = 1/2 kA^2 with A = amplitude

2.7* 2.05^2 = 420*A^2

A = 0.1643 cm ---> amplitude

------

4)

T = 2pi?(m/k) = 2pi?(2.7/420) = 0.503 s

-----

yes, at the highest point of the movement

falling book by the compressed spring would?
o Increase by the same amount
o Increase by 4 times as much if the height is doubled
o Double if the height...

A spring with spring constant k is suspended vertically from a
support and a mass m is attached. The mass is held at the point
where the spring is not stretched. Then the mass is released and
begins to oscillate. The lowest point in the oscillation is 18 cm
below the point where the mass was released. What is the
oscillation frequency?

A spring 1.7 m long with force constant 525 N/m is hung from the
ceiling of an elevator, and a block of mass 15 kg is attached to
the bottom of the spring.

lowered to its equilibrium point?
(b) Referring to your answer in Part (a), is the block below or
above its equilibrium position?
(c) If the elevator subsequently accelerates upward at 2.00
m/s2, what is...

A mass m is
attached to a spring with stiffness k=25 N/m. The mass is stretched
1 m to the left of the equilibrium point then released with initial
velocity 0.
Assume that m = 3 kg, the damping force is negligible,
and there is no external force. Find the position of the mass at
any time along with the frequency, amplitude, and phase angle of
the motion.
