The other end of the cord is attached securely to the wall. The weight is then pushed off the wall and falls freely the full length of the cord. W W (a) Derive a formula for the impact factor. (b) Evaluate the impact factor if the weight, when hanging statically, elongates the band by 2.5% of its original length. Solution 2.8-13 Weight falling off a wall CONSERVATION OF ENERGY P.E.
