Question

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 light horizontal spring of force constant 2000 N/m rests on the floor 20.0 m above the ground. The combination of the blocks will stop once they have compressed the spring by 30.0 cm. What is the work of friction along the way?

Answer #1

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.

What is the speed of the block when it has moved a distance of
0.0190 m from its initial position?...

A 2.00 kg block slides on a frictionless, horizontal surface
with a speed of 5.10 m/s, until colliding head-on with, and
sticking to, a 1.00 kg block at rest. A) Find the speed of the
combination after the collision. B) The two blocks continue to
slide together until coming in contact with a horizontal spring and
eventually brought to rest. If the blocks compress the spring 10.0
cm, find the spring constant of the spring. C) How much work did...

A 500 g block, sliding on horizontal surface, collides head-on,
and sticks to, a 200 g block at rest. A) Find the speed of the
combination after the collision if the 500 g block was was moving
at 5.00 m/s before the collision. B) If the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the blocks and the floor is 0.315, how much
further with the blocks go before stopping?

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.

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
0.25.
a. What is the speed of the box just before reaching the rough
surface?
b. What is the speed of the box just before...

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 block of mass m = 2.90 kg slides along a horizontal table with
velocity v 0 = 2.00 m/s . At x = 0 , it hits a spring with spring
constant k = 33.00 N/m and it also begins to experience a friction
force. The coefficient of friction is given by μ = 0.400 . How far
has the spring compressed by the time the block first momentarily
comes to rest? Assume the positive direction is to the...

A block of mass ?=4.50 kg m=4.50 kg slides along a horizontal
table with velocity ? 0 =2.50 m/s v0=2.50 m/s . At ?=0 x=0 , it
hits a spring with spring constant ?=43.00 N/m k=43.00 N/m and it
also begins to experience a friction force. The coefficient of
friction is given by ?=0.300 μ=0.300 . How far has the spring
compressed by the time the block first momentarily comes to rest?
Assume the positive direction is to the right.

A 4.82 kg block located on a horizontal frictionless floor is
pulled by a cord that exerts a force F=12.4N at an angle
theta=25.0degrees above the horizontal, as shown. What is the
magnitude of the acceleration of the block when the force is
applied?
What is the horizontal speed of the block 4.30 seconds after it
starts moving?
What is the magnitude of the normal force acting on the block
when the force F is acting on it?
If, instead,...

A 4.00 kg block hangs by a light string that passes over a
massless, frictionless pulley and is connected to a 6.00 kg block
that rests on a frictionless shelf. The 6.00 kg block is pushed
agaisnt a spring to which it is not attached. THe spring has a
spring constant of 180 N/m , and it is compressed by 30.0cm. Find
the speed of the block after the spring is released and the 4.00 kg
block has fallen a...
