A 500g block is attached to a 60cm long massless spring with spring constant of 40N/m and is at rest with the back of the block at point A on a frictionless table. A horizontal force of 20N is applied to pull the block towards the right. What is the block's speed when the back of the block reaches point B which is 25cm to the right of point A?
Spring Potential=.5(40N/m(.0625m^2)=1.25J
Kinetic Energy=Fx=20N(.25m)=5J
ME=KE+PE = 6.25J=(.5kg(v^2))/2 + 1.25J
v=4.47m/s
Does this look right?
