Problem 4-1: The 4-kg collar starts from rest at position 1 and slides down the smooth rigid wire. The y axis points upward, the spring constant is 20 N/m and its undeformed length is 3 m. What is the magnitude of the velocity of the collar when it reaches position 2?

Problem 4-2: Masses A and B , each having a mass of 25 kg, are constrained to move in unidirectional slots, as shown in the diagram. The masses are connected by a light rod of length L = 300 mm. These masses are also connected to two massless linear springs, each having a spring constant k = 50 N/m. The springs are unstretched when the connecting rod is vertical. Determine the velocities of A and B , when A has descended a distance of 10 mm. Neglect friction in the slots and at the ends of the connecting rod.
