Energy/ work problem set(last question!!!) 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 53.5 g ice cube can slide without friction up and down a 33.0° slope. The ice cube is pressed against a spring at the bottom of the slope, compressing the spring 12.0 cm. The spring constant is 22.0 N/m. When the ice cube is released, what total distance will it travel up the slope, from the time the spring is fully compressed until reversing direction? 2. Relevant equations 1/2kx^2, mgh, maybe 1/2mv^2 3. The attempt at a solution here's my best shot: PE(spring) at bottom=PE(grav) at top 1/2kx^2 = mgh since gravity has a component in x direction: 1/2kx^2 = mhgsin33 since sin33=h/d, h=dsin33: 1/2kx^2=m(dsin33)(gsin33) using this, i got 1.02m+.12m (compression of spring). i tried with and without compression of the spring, stillc ouldn't get the right ans. i'm sure 1 m is too long for a titchy little icecube to travel. any help would be appreciated.
