Question

A system consists of a 4.0-kg cart and a 1.2-kg cart attached to each other by a compressed spring. Initially, the system is at rest on a low-friction track. When the spring is released, an explosive separation occurs at the expense of the internal energy of the compressed spring. The change in the spring's internal energy during the separation is 1.0 kJ. What is the speed of 1.2-kg cart right after the separation? What is the speed of 4.0-kg cart right after the separation?

Answer #1

A cart of mass m = 1.2 kg is placed on a horizontal track. The
cart rolls with very little friction, and is attached to the left
end of the track by a spring with negligible mass, spring constant
k = 20.0 N/m, and un-stretched length 25.0 cm.
(A) The cart is moved 7.5 cm to the left of its equilibrium
position, and is then released from rest. Draw a sketch of the
position x along the track of the...

A mass of 0.5 kg is attached to a spring whose k=8000 N/m. The
system rests on a
level friction-free air track and is initially at rest. A second
mass makes a head-on
elastic collision with the mass attached to the spring; thereafter
the oscillating
system vibrates with amplitude of 0.5 m. If the incident mass is
0.4 kg, what was its
incident speed?

Give all five aspects of every problem: visual representation,
principles/laws/assumptions of physics, symbolic representation -
equations with variables, numerical solution, and check - refer to
the principles you invoked and comment on the nature of the
numerical solution.
On a low-friction track, two carts coupled together are initially
moving to the right at 3.0 m/s. The rear cart has an inertia of 2.5
kg and he lead cartâ€™s inertia is 4.0 kg. An explosive charge
attached to the coupling is...

Mazur 9.40: Two identical 0.50 kg carts, each 0.10 m long, are
at rest on a low-friction track and are connected by a spring that
is initially at its relaxed length of 0.50 m and is of negligible
inertia. You give the cart on the left a push to the right (that
is, toward the other cart), exerting a constant 5.0-N force. You
stop pushing at the instant when the cart has moved 0.40 m. At this
instant, the relative...

A 2.90 kg block on a horizontal floor is attached to a
horizontal spring that is initially compressed 0.0340 m . The
spring has force constant 850 N/m . The coefficient of kinetic
friction between the floor and the block is 0.42 . The block and
spring are released from rest and the block slides along the
floor.
Part A
What is the speed of the block when it has moved a distance of
0.0190 m from its initial position?...

A cart with mass 271 g, moving on a frictionless linear air
track at an initial speed of 1.08 m/s hits an initially stationary
cart of unknown mass. After the collision, the first cart continues
in its original direction at 0.92 m/s. The collision is
elastic.
(a) What is the mass of the second cart?
(b) What is the speed of the second cart?
A block of mass 0.29 kg is placed on top of a light, vertical
spring of...

A 0.150-kg cart is attached to an ideal spring with a force
constant of (spring constant) of 3.58 N/m undergoes simple harmonic
motion and has a speed of 1.5 m/s at the equilibrium position. At
what distance from the equilibrium position are the kinetic energy
and potential energy of the system the same?

A mass and spring system has mass m = 1.2 kg. The spring
constant is unknown. Also, neglect friction for this system. A)
When the system is compressed by 1.00 cm and let go the frequency
of the periodic motion is 0.75 Hz. What is the value of the spring
constant k? B) What is the maximum speed vmax of the motion? C)
What is the total energy TE = PE + KE in the system?

A spring-mass system consists of a 0.5 kg mass attached to a
spring with a force constant of k = 8 N/m. You may neglect the mass
of the spring. The system undergoes simple harmonic motion with an
amplitude of 5 cm. Calculate the following: 1. The period T of the
motion 2. The maximum speed Vmax 3. The speed of the object when it
is at x = 3.5 cm from the equilibrium position. 4. The total energy
E...

A mass of 0.5 kg is attached to the end of a massless spring of
spring constant 0.40 N/m. It is released from rest from an extended
position. After 0.6 s, the speed of the mass is measured to be 2.5
m/s. What is the amplitude of oscillation?
What is the total energy (relative to the mass at rest in the
unextended position) contained in this system?
