Question:

The 2 lb block is released from rest at A slides down along the smooth cylindrical surface. The attached spring has a stiffness = 2.6 lb/ft.

Part A

Determine its unstreched length so that it does not allow the block to leave the surface until {eq}\theta = 60^o {/eq}.

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

Spring

A device which is used to absorbs energy when the force acting on it and release the energy after removal of force is known as spring. There are different types of spring used in the automotive industry like helical spring, coil spring, disc spring.

Answer and Explanation:

Given data

  • The weight of the block is: {eq}w = 2\;{\rm{lb}} {/eq}.
  • The stiffness of the attached spring is: {eq}k = 2.6\;{\rm{lb/ft}} {/eq}.
  • The...
