Unformatted text preview: =? =? =? How should we proceed? Lets try energy which buckets do we need KE g S KE g S mgh = 1 / 2 k x 2 = E is conserved x = h 1 / 2 k x 2 = mgh x= 2mg k Total fall distance A mass is held up at the springs relaxed length then released. Find all of the following: Distance the mass falls Height it returns to Amplitude Max velocity Max acceleration KE g S 1 / 2 k x 2 = x = 2mg k Instant of release =? =? =? x = h KE g S KE g S Returns to the starting position where v = 0 again A = mg k 1 / 4 PE max = 1 / 2 mv 2 W T T  W = ma k x  mg = ma 2mg  mg = ma a = g !!!!...
