The suggested times are about 17 minutes for answering each of Questions 1-2 and about 11 minutes for answering each of Questions 3-7. The parts within a question may not have equal weight. Show all your work in the pink booklet in the spaces provided after each part, NOT in this green insert. 1. (15 points) Block A of mass 4.0 kg is on a horizontal, frictionless tabletop and is placed against a spring of negligible mass and spring constant 650 N m . The other end of the spring is attached to a wall. The block is pushed toward the wall until the spring has been compressed a distance x, as shown above. The block is released and follows the trajectory shown, falling 0.80 m vertically and striking a target on the floor that is a horizontal distance of 1.2 m from the edge of the table. Air resistance is negligible. (a) Calculate the time elapsed from the instant block A leaves the table to the instant it strikes the floor. (b) Calculate the speed of the block as it leaves the table. (c) Calculate the distance x the spring was compressed. Block B, also of mass 4.0 kg, is now placed at the edge of the table. The spring is again compressed a distance x, and block A is released. As it nears the end of the table, it instantaneously collides with and sticks to block B. The blocks follow the trajectory shown in the figure below and strike the floor at a horizontal distance d from the edge of the table. © 2010 The College Board.
