Question:

You compress a spring with k = 3000 N/m a distance of 0.2 m with a block of mass 4 kg. You then release the block. It slides along a frictionless surface and then goes up an incline of 35{eq}^{\circ} {/eq}. What is the velocity of the block after it leaves the spring but before it gets to the incline?

How far up the incline (along the hypotenuse of the triangle) does the block travel?

Kinetic energy:

The term kinetic energy is defined as considered when the body is in motion for producing some work done. The kinetic energy is used to accelerate the body with a velocity. The standard unit of the kinetic energy is Newton meter.

Given data:

  • The spring stiffness is {eq}k = 3000\,{\rm{N/m}} {/eq}
  • The block of mass is {eq}m = 4\,{\rm{kg}} {/eq}
  • The distance is {eq}d =...
