2 Substitute the givens Check • Could we have solved this with Impulse-Momentum? • Could we have solved this with F=ma? Concept Quiz A spring loaded Nerf gun is used to shoot a dart straight up in the air. The dart reaches a maximum height of 24 m. The same dart is shot straight up a second time from the same gun, but this time the spring is compressed only half as far before firing. How far up does the dart go this time (ignore friction and assume an ideal spring)? A) 96 m B) 48 m C) 12 m D) 6 m E) 3 m Power & Efficiency • Power is the rate of work • Mechanical Efficiency
