Question

A 2.00 kg block sliding on a horizontal surface makes contact
with a spring, compressing

the spring (the other end of the spring is attached to a rigid
wall). At the instant of

contact, the block has a speed of 12.0 m/s. The coefficients
of static and kinetic friction

between the block and the surface are 0.55 and 0.35,
respectively. The spring constant of

the spring is 100.0 N/m.

a) Determine the maximum compression of the spring

b) Determine the final resting place of the block with respect
to the original point

of contact

Answer #1

. 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

You push a 3.2 kg block against a horizontal spring, compressing
the spring by 16 cm. Then you release the block, and the spring
sends it sliding across a tabletop. It stops 62 cm from where you
released it. The spring constant is 170 N/m. What is the
coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the
table?

You push a 4.5 kg block against a horizontal spring, compressing
the spring by 26 cm. Then you release the block, and the spring
sends it sliding across a tabletop. It stops 84 cm from where you
released it. The spring constant is 280 N/m. What is the
coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the
table?

A man pushes a 4.0 kg block against a horizontal spring,
compressing the spring by 20 cm. Then the man releases the block,
and the spring sends it sliding across a tabletop. It stops 90 cm
from where you released it. The spring constant is 325 N/m. What is
the block–table coefficient of kinetic friction?
A.
0.47
B.
0.97
C.
0.57
D.
0.37

A 3.0-kg block sliding on a frictionless horizontal surface is
accelerated by a compressed spring. If the 200 N/m spring is
initially compressed 10 cm, determine (a) the potential energy
stored in the spring. As the block leaves the spring, find (b) the
kinetic energy of the block, and (c) the velocity of the block.

A 28 kg block on a horizontal surface is attached to a
horizontal spring of spring constant k = 4.8 kN/m. The block is
pulled to the right so that the spring is stretched 7.2 cm beyond
its relaxed length, and the block is then released from rest. The
frictional force between the sliding block and the surface has a
magnitude of 37 N. (a) What is the kinetic energy of the block when
it has moved 1.6 cm from...

Another block, another spring. This time around, the block (m =
1.18 kg) is compressing a spring with spring constant k = 273 N/m
by 36.3 cm. It is released from rest so it then slides along the
horizontal surface shown. This time, there is friction on the
horizontal surface, with a coefficient of friction between the
block and surface of μk = 0.11. In addition, there is a steady wind
blowing to the right, exerting a constant 6.7 N...

A 41.9-kg block of ice at 0 °C is sliding on a horizontal
surface. The initial speed of the ice is 8.83 m/s and the final
speed is 3.69 m/s. Assume that the part of the block that melts has
a very small mass and that all the heat generated by kinetic
friction goes into the block of ice, and determine the mass of ice
that melts into water at 0 °C.

A 48.5-kg block of ice at 0 °C is sliding on a horizontal
surface. The initial speed of the ice is 8.24 m/s and the final
speed is 4.08 m/s. Assume that the part of the block that melts has
a very small mass and that all the heat generated by kinetic
friction goes into the block of ice, and determine the mass of ice
that melts into water at 0 °C.

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...
