Question

A 1 kg block of wood is attached to a spring, of force constant 200 N/m, which is attached to an immovable support. The block rests on a frictional surface with a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.2. A 20 g bullet is fired into the block horizontally compressing the spring a maximum distance of 15 cm. Find the original velocity of the bullet before the collision.

A pellet gun fires into a stationary block of wood that is
attached to a spring on a frictionless surface. When the bullet
enters the wood, it remains inside, and the bullet and the block
enter into simple harmonic motion with amplitude = 11.0 cm. The
bullet (m = 5 grams) was initially traveling at 650 m/s before
hitting the block of wood (m = 2.5 kg).
a) What is the spring constant of the spring?
b) What is the...

A 13.1-g bullet is fired into a block of wood at 245 m/s. The block
is attached to a spring that has a spring constant of 205 N/m. The
block and bullet continue to move, compressing the spring by 35.0
cm before the whole system momentarily comes to a stop.
Assuming that the surface on which the block is resting is
frictionless, determine the mass of the wooden block.

A 172 g block is launched by compressing a spring of constant
k=200N/m a distance of 15 cm. The spring is mounted
horizontally, and the surface directly under it is frictionless.
But beyond the equilibrium position of the spring end, the surface
has coefficient of friction μ=0.27. This frictional
surface extends 85 cm, followed by a frictionless curved rise, as
shown in the figure
After launch, where does the block finally come to rest? Measure

A 1.42 kg block is attached to a horizontal spring with spring
constant 3100 N/m . The block is at rest on a frictionless surface.
A 8.40 g bullet is fired into the block, in the face opposite the
spring, and sticks.
Part A
What was the bullet's speed if the subsequent oscillations have
an amplitude of 14.3 cm ?

. A block of mass 2.00 kg is attached to a horizontal spring
with a force constant of 500 N/m. The spring is stretched 5.00 cm
from its equilibrium position and released from rest. Use
conservation of mechanical energy to determine the speed of the
block as it returns to equilibrium
(a) if the surface is frictionless
(b) if the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and
the surface is 0.350

A bullet with a mass ?b=12.7 g is fired into a block of wood at
velocity ?b=261 m/s. The block is attached to a spring that has a
spring constant ? of 205 N/m. The block and bullet continue to
move, compressing the spring by 35.0 cm before the whole system
momentarily comes to a stop. Assuming that the surface on which the
block is resting is frictionless, determine the mass of the wooden
block.

A block of mass m = 0.53 kg attached to a spring with force
constant 119 N/m is free to move on a frictionless, horizontal
surface as in the figure below. The block is released from rest
after the spring is stretched a distance A = 0.13 m. (Indicate the
direction with the sign of your answer. Assume that the positive
direction is to the right.)
The left end of a horizontal spring is attached to a vertical
wall, and...

A 5
kg block of wood connected to a horizontal spring (constant 130
N/m) is at rest on a frictionless plane. Bullet (50 mg) is fired at
block and horizontal velocity is 25 m/s and bullet is stuck in it.
The block goes through simple harmonic oscillation.
What is the amplitude of resulting oscillation?
What is the total mechanical energy of the block with the
bullet inside?
What is the magnitude of velocity of the block with the bullet
when...

A block of mass m = 2.00 kg is attached to a spring of force
constant k = 600 N/m as shown in the figure below. The block is
pulled to a position xi = 5.35 cm to the right of equilibrium and
released from rest. (a) Find the speed the block has as it passes
through equilibrium if the horizontal surface is frictionless. m/s
(b) Find the speed the block has as it passes through equilibrium
(for the first...

A 0.0392-kg bullet is fired horizontally into a 2.04-kg wooden
block attached to one end of a massless, horizontal spring
(k = 838 N/m). The other end of the spring is fixed in
place, and the spring is unstrained initially. The block rests on a
horizontal, frictionless surface. The bullet strikes the block
perpendicularly and quickly comes to a halt within it. As a result
of this completely inelastic collision, the spring is compressed
along its axis and causes the...
