Question

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 then released. The heavy block collides with the stationary lighter block and the two blocks stick together after collision

Part A) What is the speed of the heavier block just before the collision? (three sig figs)

part B) What is the speed of the combined blocks just after the collision? (two sig figs)

part C) What is the maximum stretch of the spring after the collision? (two sig figs)

Part D) What is the time period of subsequent oscillations?(two sig figs)

Thank you in advance!!

A block with a mass of 0.85 kg rests on a horizontal,
frictionless surface and is attached to an unstretched spring of
length 20 cm. The spring constant of the spring is 9.5 x 103 N/m.
The spring is attached to a wall at its other end. A 7.50-grams,
9-mm-diameter bullet is fired into the block at a speed of 350 m/s
and embeds itself in the block. The system now starts
oscillating.

Block B of 40.0 kg is sitting at a frictionless horizontal floor
at a height h1 = 40.0 m above the ground, when a second 100.0 kg
block (block A), moving at an unknown speed hits and sticks to
block B. After the collision, the combination slides down a hill
which has friction, with a speed of 2.00 m/s.
A. What was the speed of the block A before the collision?
B. At the end of the path, a very...

Block 2 with mass m2=5.0 kg is at rest on a
frictionless surface and connected to a spring constant k=64.0 N/m.
The other end of the spring is connected to a wall, and the spring
is initially at its equilibrium (unstretched) position. Block 1
with mass m1=10.0 is initially traveling with speed
v1=4.0 m/s and collides with block 2. The collision is
instantaneous, and the blocks stick together after the collision.
Find the speed of the blocks immediately after the...

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...

In the figure, block 2 (mass 1.60 kg) is at rest on a
frictionless surface and touching the end of an unstretched spring
of spring constant 128 N/m. The other end of the spring is fixed to
a wall. Block 1 (mass 1.70 kg), traveling at speed v1 = 5.80 m/s,
collides with block 2, and the two blocks stick together. When the
blocks momentarily stop, by what distance is the spring
compressed?

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.

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

The horizontal surface on which the block slides is
frictionless. The speed vi of the block of mass m= 2.0 kg before it
touches the spring is 10 m/s. After the spring is compressed by
0.20 m, the block starts to move back to the right. What is the
velocity vf of the block in m/s when the spring is compressed by
0.15m ?

A.) A block of mass 1.12 kg is placed on a frictionless floor
and initially pushed northward, whereupon it begins sliding with a
constant speed of 4.23 m/s. It eventually collides with a second,
stationary block, of mass 3.60 kg, head-on, and rebounds back to
the south. The collision is 100% elastic. What will be the speeds
of the 1.12-kg and 3.60-kg blocks, respectively, after this
collision?

A wooden block is at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface
and is connected to a spring (k =150 N/m). The mass of the wooden
block is 0.10 kg. A bullet (mass 0.012 kg) and velocity 270 m/s is
fired horizontally into the wooden block. After collision the
bullet stays in the block. (a) Find the speed of the bullet-block
system right after the collision. (b) If the bullet-block system
compresses the spring by a maximum of d. Find d

A blue block has a mass of 0.92 kg and is stationary on a
horizontal frictionless surface. It is struck with a rubber mallet
causing it to slide with a speed of 3.1 m/s on the horizontal
surface. The mallet is in contact with the block for 23
milliseconds. The blue block collides with a red block with a mass
of 0.75 kg and the two blocks stick together. The two blocks slide
up a long smooth incline and come...
