Question

If compressing a spring 3.0 cm from equilibrium stores 3.0 joules of energy, how far from equilibrium would you have to compress the same spring to store a total of 12.0 joules of energy?

**Answer in centimeters**

Answer #1

Given Spring length = 3.00 cm

Energy stored in spring U = 3.0 joules

3.0 = k * /2

= 2/3

Same spring to store a total of 12.0 joules of energy()

i.e

Energy stored in spring

12.0 = 2 * /6

= 36 cm

= 6 cm

Compressing a spring(
= 2/3) **6.00 cm** from equilibrium stores
joules of **12.0 joules** of energy.

A spring is stretched 3.00 cm by a force of 12.0 N. How far
would the spring have to be stretched to produce a potential energy
of 1.00 J?

A mass on a spring oscillates with an amplitude of 30.0 cm. How
far from the equilibrium position is the mass when one third of its
total energy is kinetic energy?

When we compress a spring from equilibrium to x cm, we gain
a
elastic potential energy. When we compress the spring from x
cm to 2x
cm we gain an elastic potential energy which is
equal to that of the first case
2. A body is at rest on a table. Regarding the force that the
table exerts on the body, it can be said that:
A) It is equal to the weight of the body
B) It is greater...

An ideal spring of negligible mass is 12.00 cm long when nothing
is attached to it. When you hang a 3.55 kg object from
it, you measure its length to be 13.40 cm.

Can you explain in terms of energy transfer why a spring pulled
14 cm down from equilibrium oscillates another 14 cm up form
equilibrium?

1) An unstretched spring with spring constant 36 N cm is
suspended from the ceiling. A 3.0 kg mass is attached to the spring
and let fall. How far does it stretch the spring?
(a)0.4 cm, (b) 1.6 cm, (c) 4.5 cm , (d)9.3 cm.
2) What are the fundamental units of G, the Gravitational
constant?
(a) m2 Nkg2 (b) m2N kg2 (c) kg2N m2 (d) kg2N m2

Suppose that 2 Joules of work is needed to stretch a spring from
its natural length of 40 cm to a length of 61 cm. How much work is
needed to stretch it from 54 cm to 65 cm? Your answer must include
the correct units.

A spring/mass system is shown in four different states:
The spring hangs vertically in equilibrium with no mass at its
end.
A 2.6 kg mass hangs from the spring in equilibrium, stretching
the spring b=5.7 cm.
The mass is pulled down a distance c and released.
The mass is at the reference height moving with a speed of
v=8.4 m/s.
How far down (c) was the mass pulled before it was
released? (Hint: you can calculate the spring constant with...

1. Steve, with mass m, is ready to
squat jump Kale’s insecurities—represented by
n moles of a solid with total mass
M—out of Earth’s atmosphere. He decides
to model his squat as a spring with constant
k compressing vertically down a distance
d from equilibrium, and the jump as
releasing that spring, launching himself and Kale’s insecurities to
a maximum height h above equilibrium. He
does everything perfectly.
a) When he gets to that maximum height, he finds that Kale’s...

A child’s toy consists of a m = 36 g monkey
suspended from a spring of negligible mass and spring constant
k. When the toy monkey is first hung on the spring and the
system reaches equilibrium, the spring has stretched a distance of
x = 17.7 cm, as shown in the diagram. This toy is
so adorable you pull the monkey down an additional d =
4.6 cm from equilibrium and release it from rest, and
smile with delight...
