## Question:

Block A having a mass of 2 kg,is release from rest,fall a distance h = 0.5 m, and strike a plate B having a mass of 3 kg. spring stiffness is 100N/m. Determine the maximum deformation of spring.

## Spring Stiffness:

When a spring is loaded by some force (compressive or tensile), deflection is observed in the spring due to that force. So, the material of spring opposes that deflection and this opposition is known as spring stiffness. It depends on the force applied and the material of spring.

Given data:

• Mass of block A is: {eq}{m_A} = 2\;{\rm{kg}} {/eq}
• Mass of block B is: {eq}{m_B} = 3\;{\rm{kg}} {/eq}
• Distance by which block A strikes...
