    Spring force, find the speed at equilibrium

    A .50 kg block sliding on horizontal frictionless surface is attached to one end of a horizontal spring (with k = 500 N/M) whose other end is fixed. The block has a kinetic energy of 20J as it pass through its equilibrium position (the point at which the spring force is zero.) what is the speed...

    Find Velocity and acceleration

    A particle starts from the origin at t = 0 and moves along the positive x axis. A graph of the velocity of the particle as a function of the time is shown in Fig. 2-43; the v-axis scale is set by vs = 7.00 m/s. (a) What is the coordinate of the particle at t = 5.0 s? (b) What is the...
