Block attached to spring is kicked,what distance will the spring stretch?

  1. Apr 23, 2012 #1
    A block, no friction, of 1 kg is attached to a spring rests on a horizontal surface with a length L. The spring is connected to a fixed point. The 1kg block is kicked and has a velocity of 1 m/s. As the block swings around the fixed point, the spring stretches to a total distance of L + x, at position 90 degrees counter-clockwise from rest.. What is the distance in meters the spring stretches?

    L=1m
    m=1kg
    k=1 N/m
    Vi=1 m/s
    x=?



    F=-kx


    I am having a difficult time getting this problem started. Thanks!
