Unformatted text preview: ior to impact, A is at rest.
a) Determine the speed of A immediately after impact. Consider using both
conservation of moment of A+P during impact and the coefficient of restitution.
Assume that the hammer contacts A only once. Ignore the influence of the spring
and dashpot on the motion of the block during impact.
b) Derive the EOM for the mass-spring-dashpot system governing motion for all
time after impact in terms of the coordinate x.
c) Determine the response x(t) for all time after impact. Wh...
