Question

A 4.5 kg box slides down a 5.2-m -high frictionless hill, starting from rest, across a 2.2-m -wide horizontal surface, then hits a horizontal spring with spring constant 550 N/m . The other end of the spring is anchored against a wall. The ground under the spring is frictionless, but the 2.2-m-long horizontal surface is rough. The coefficient of kinetic friction of the box on this surface is 0.27.

Part A.

What is the speed of the box just before reaching the rough surface?

Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

Part B.

What is the speed of the box just before hitting the spring?

Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

Part C.

How far is the spring compressed?

Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

Part D.

Including the first crossing, how many *complete* trips
will the box make across the rough surface before coming to
rest?

Answer #1

a) Using conservation of energy

P.E (top) + K.E (top) = P.E (bottom) + K.E (bottom)

mgh + 0 = 0 + 1/2mv^{2}

v = sqrt (2gh)

v = sqrt ( 2*9.8*5.2)

v = 10.0955 m/s

___________________________________________________________________________________________

b) energy at bottom of hill = 1/2mv^{2} =
0.5*4.5*10.0955^{2} = 229.32

energy after rough surface = 26.1954

loss = 203.12 J

v = sqrt (2*203.12 / 4.5)

v = 9.5 m/s

____________________________________________________________________________

c) 1/2mv^{2} = 1/kx^{2}

x = sqrt (mv^{2} / k) (here v is speed before
spring)

x = 0.859 m

____________________________________________________________________________________

d) it will make 8 complete trips

A 5.0 kg box slides down a 5.0 m high frictionless hill,
starting from rest, across a 2.0 m wide horizontal surface, then
hits a horizontal spring with spring constant 500 N/m. The ground
under the spring is frictionless, but the 2.0 m wide horizontal
surface is rough with a coefficient of kinetic friction of

A horizontal spring with spring constant 150 N/m is compressed
17 cm and used to launch a 2.9 kg box across a frictionless,
horizontal surface. After the box travels some distance, the
surface becomes rough. The coefficient of kinetic friction of the
box on the surface is 0.15.
Use work and energy to find how far the box slides across the
rough surface before stopping.
Express your answer to two significant figures and include the
appropriate units.

A block of mass m = 1.50 kg slides down a 30.0∘ incline
which is 3.60 m high. At the bottom, it strikes a block of mass
M = 6.20 kg which is at rest on a horizontal surface
(Figure 1). (Assume a smooth transition at the bottom of the
incline.) The collision is elastic, and friction can be
ignored.
Part A
Determine the speed of the block with mass m = 1.50 kg
after the collision.
Express your answer...

A 91 kg crate, starting from rest, is pulled across a floor with
a constant horizontal force of 400 N . For the first 15 m the floor
is frictionless, and for the next 15 m the coefficient of friction
is 0.20.
What is the final speed of the crate?
Express your answer using two significant figures.

In the figure, a 4.5 kg box of running shoes slides on a
horizontal frictionless table and collides with a 2.8 kg box of
ballet slippers initially at rest on the edge of the table, at
height h = 0.60 m. The speed of the 4.5 kg box is 4.8 m/s just
before the collision. If the two boxes stick together because of
packing tape on their sides, what is their kinetic energy just
before they strike the floor?

A block (4 kg) starts from rest and slides down
a frictionless ramp #1 of height 9 m. The block
then slides a horizontal distance of 1 m on a
rough surface with kinetic coefficient of friction
μk = 0.5. Next, it slides back up
another frictionless ramp #2.

A 30-kg crate starts from rest, slides down a frictionless
incline and then along a rough horizontal surface until it comes to
rest. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the horizontal
surface and the crate is 0.27. If the crate’s initial height is 9
m, find the distance it travels on the horizontal surface.

Part a.
Starting from rest, a 14 kg box slides down a frictionless incline
that is 7 meters tall. What is the velocity of the box at the
bottom of the incline?
Part b.
