3/144 The 50 lb slider in the position shown has an initial velocity v 1 of 2 ft/sec. Slides under influence of gravity and friction. μ k = 0.5. Find the velocity of the slider as it passes a position for which the spring is compressed x= 4 inches. The spring is a hardened spring – see figure and equation below. T 1 + U 1-2 = T 2 T 2 = 0.5 mv 2 2 = 0.5*[50/32.2] v 2 2 - + - = = f x spring dx x F mg N 0 2 - 1 2 - 1 )} ( sin { U d U θ μ 2 1 r r r F Write out equations for each term The friction term is negative because it acts in the opposite direction to the displacement– same for the spring . What is the distance x, the normal force N, and the equation for F spring (x)? F spring = 100 x + 9 x 2
