Unformatted text preview: Express your answer in terms of R, k, m and R2 /k. (c) If V is twice the value it would have with a linear spring with spring constant k, what is ? Express your answer in terms of k and R2 . Solution: To solve, we first determine the work done by the nonlinear spring force for general displacement from a point x1 to x2 . Then, we use the Principle of Work and Energy for the collar's motion along the horizontal ring as it moves from Point A to Point B. This will establish its speed when it reaches Point B. T...
