Question

The potential energy stored in the compressed spring of a dart gun, with a spring constant of 36.00 N/m, is 1.020 J.

Find by how much is the spring is compressed.

A 0.050 kg dart is fired straight up. Find the vertical distance the dart travels from its position when the spring is compressed to its highest position.

The same dart is now fired horizontally from a height of 2.30 m. The dart remains in contact until the spring reaches its equilibrium position. Find the horizontal velocity of the dart at that time.

Find the horizontal distance from the equilibrium position at which the dart hits the ground.

1.The potential energy stored in the compressed spring of a dart
gun, with a spring constant of 62.00 N/m, is 0.980 J. Find by how
much is the spring is compressed.
2.A 0.170 kg dart is fired straight up. Find the vertical
distance the dart travels from its position when the spring is
compressed to its highest position.
3.The same dart is now fired horizontally from a height of 4.30
m. The dart remains in contact until the spring reaches...

A dart gun has a spring with a constant of 875 N/m. The spring
is initially compressed 5.5 cm. You fire a 0.075-kg dart from a
height of 0 m. The dart hits a wall at a height of 1.5 m. Ignore
air resistance.
What is the initial potential energy of the
spring?
What is the speed of the dart just before it hits the
wall?
The dart then penetrates 0.5 cm into the wall before coming to
rest.

The toy gun in the figure below consists of a spring with spring
constant k. It is loaded with a projectile of mass m and the spring
is compressed of a distance d. The toy gun is fired horizontally
and the bullet travels a total distance of L within the toy gun
before it is released.
A) Neglecting all resistive forces, determine the speed of the
projectile v0 once it exits the toy gun (i.e, express v0 in terms
of...

The toy gun in the figure below consists of a spring with spring
constant k. Itis loaded with a projectile of mass mand the spring
is compressed a distance d. The toy gun is fired horizontally and
the bullet travels a total distance Lwithin the toy gunbefore it is
released. A) Neglecting all resistive forces, determine the speed
of the projectile v0once it exits the toy gun(i.e., expressv0 in
terms of the known quantities k, m, L, d).B) Suppose now...

The launching mechanism of a toy gun consists of a spring of
unknown spring constant, as shown in the figure below. If the
spring is compressed a distance of 0.200 m and the gun fired
vertically as shown, the gun can launch a 16.0-g projectile from
rest to a maximum height of 26.0 m above the starting point of the
projectile. Figures a and b show a ball in a toy spring gun,
oriented with its barrel vertical and opening...

A spring-loaded dart gun with spring constant k
shoots a dart straight up. The spring has an initial compression
x and is released from rest. The dart reaches a
maximum height h. If we wanted the dart to go four
times as high, how much should we compress the spring?

You stand on a roof and fire a spring-loaded BB gun
horizontally. The BB is fired from a height of 4 m above the
ground. The BB has a mass of 3 grams and lands on the ground a
distance of 30 m from where it was fired. The spring in the gun is
compressed 12 cm before firing.
a) What is spring constant k of the spring?
b) How many newtons of force is required to compress the spring...

A toy gun uses a spring with a force constant of 300N/m to
propel a 15.0 g steel ball. If the spring is compressed 6.00 cm and
friction is negligible:
a) how much force is needed to compress the spring?
b) what is the maxium height that the ball can reach?
c) If the gun is fired at an angle of 7.50 degrees above the
horizontal, what is the maxium distance the ball will travel on
level ground?

A spring-loaded toy gun is used to shoot a ball of mass
m=1.50kg straight up in the air. The spring has spring
constant k=667 N/m. If the spring is compressed a distance
of 19.0 cm from its equilibrium position y=0 and then
released, the ball reaches a maximum height hmax (measured
from the equilibrium position of the spring). There is no air
resistance, and the ball never touches the inside of the gun.
Assume that all movement occurs in a...

When a spring is compressed...

minimum.
The potential energy is at a minimum and kinetic energy is at a
maximum.
The potential energy is at a maximum and kinetic energy is at a

The potential energy is at a maximum and kinetic energy is at a
maximum.
A ball mass 6 g is placed in front of a spring
compressed by 7.21 cm. Right after launch, the...
