1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Suppose an object of mass .505 kg was oscillating with initial Emec = 1.12 J at the end of a spring, and the system was submersed in a liquid medium that absorbed energy at a steady rate of .250 m2/s * spring constant (29.6 N/m). How long would it take the spring to stop oscillating? 2. Relevant equations ΔEmec/t = power (we use power since units end up being Watts) 3. The attempt at a solution ΔEmec/t = 7.4 W t=.15 s It just seems too easy. Am I doing this right?
