Question

A tension of 35.0N is applied downward on a 2.50kg mass. What
is the acceleration of the mass?

-14.0m/s2

-59.5m/s2

-23.8m/s2

-4.20m/s2

A spring with a spring constant of 4.75N/m applies a force of
3.25N when it is stretched. How much was the spring
compressed?

0.684m

1.46m

8.00m

15.4m

Answer #1

1) Given:

T = 35 N in the upward direction

mg = force due to gravity in the downward direction.

Let the acceleration be 'a'.

Applying Newton's 2nd law:

mg - T = ma

=> 2.5*9.8 - 35 = 2.5 a

=> a = (2.5*9.8 - 35)/2.5

= - 4.2 m/s/s

Therefore, the correct option is 4th option. [answer]

2) Given:

k = 4.75 N/m

F = 3.25 N

let the compression be 'x'.

Therefore,

F = kx

=> x = F/k

= 3.25/4.75

= 0.684 m

Therefore, the correct option is the first option. [answer]

A 6.00 kg mass hangs from a cable.
a. What is the tension in that cable?
b. The object is given an upward acceleration of 3.00 m/s2 by a
force pulling straight up on the cable. What is the tension in the
cable during that acceleration?
c. The force on the cable is reduced to an amount that allows
the object to fall with a downward acceleration of 5.00 m/s2. What
is the resulting tension in the cable during that...

What is the magnitude of the force exerted by a spring with a
spring constant of 447N/m, if it is stretched by 77cm?
You attach a 46.8g weight to a vertical spring and let it slowly
move down until it is in equilibrium. By how much, measured in cm,
the spring is stretched at equilibrium if the spring constant is
24N/m? g=9.8m/ s2
What is the period of the oscillations of a mass-spring system,
measured in seconds, if the mass...

Description:
A single mass m1 = 3.9 kg hangs from a spring in a
motionless elevator. The spring is extended x = 11 cm from its
unstretched length.
the spring constant of the spring is 347.45 N/m
Now, three masses m1 = 3.9 kg, m2 = 11.7
kg and m3 = 7.8 kg hang from three identical springs in
a motionless elevator. The springs all have the same spring
constant that you just calculated above.
the force the top spring...

A ball with mass m = 50.0 g, is sitting on a vertical
spring whose force constant is 120.0 N/m. The initial position of
the spring is at y = 0.00 m.
The spring is compressed downward a distance x = 0.200
m. From the compressed position, how high will the ball bearing
rise? How high is does the ball bearing rise above the position at
y = 0.00 m?
What is the kinetic energy of the ball at the...

A spring stretches 5 cm when a force of 2.0 N is applied
to it. What is its spring constant?
What is the elastic energy stored in the spring when
compressed 5 cm?
If the stored spring elastic energy is applied to a cart
(mass= 2.0 kg) on a frictionless track, what would be the cart’s
velocity?

(a) An elevator of mass m moving upward has two forces
acting on it: the upward force of tension in the cable and the
downward force due to gravity. When the elevator is accelerating
upward, which is greater, T or w?
(b) When the elevator is moving at a constant velocity upward,
which is greater, T or w?
(c) When the elevator is moving upward, but the acceleration is
downward, which is greater, T or w?
(d) Let the elevator...

05.3 Consider a spring that does not obey Hooke's law very
faithfully. One end of the spring is fixed. To keep the spring
stretched or compressed an amount x, a force along the x-axis with
xcomponent Fx =kx – bx2 + cx3 must be applied to the free end,
where k = 130 N/m, b = 660 N/m2 , and c = 16000 N/m3 . Note that x
> 0 when the spring is stretched and x < 0 when...

At one point in time, a skydiver with a mass of 75 kg
experiences a downward acceleration of -4 m/s2 . What is the
weight, net force, and magnitude of the skydiver?

Mary applies a force of 75 N to push a box with an acceleration
of 0.43 m/s2. When she increases the pushing force to 81 N, the
box's acceleration changes to 0.63 m/s2. There is a constant
friction force present between the floor and the box. (a) What is
the mass of the box? kg (b) What is the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the floor and the box?
(a) What is the mass of the box?
_________kg
(b) What...
