Physics 211 10/10 HW Handout Due Monday 10/14 Fall 2002 Spring Energy 1) A spring of spring constant k = 300 N/m is compressed 0.5 m from its equilibrium position by a block of mass 2 kg. After release the block moves right across a frictionless surface to point B. Between B and C, a distance of 1 meter, there is friction with μ k = 0.6. After C the block slides up a frictionless ramp to point D, a distance h above its starting point. Then the block turns around, and returns to the spring, compressing it.
