Unformatted text preview: experiences 400N of wind resistance, how much work is done by the earth on the helicopter? A ball on a spring swings around in a circle. As it swings once around, the spring stretches from its equilibrium length of 0.8m to a length of 1.2m. If the spring constant is 20N/m 2 , how much work is done by the spring on the ball as the ball swings once around? The spring below is initially stretched 0.5m from its equilibrium length of 1m. When the ball is released, it moves a distance of 1m. What is the total work done on the ball by the spring?...
