Unformatted text preview: – potential energy converted to kinetic energy, projectile velocity. Flight of projectile – kinetic energy converted to gravitational potential energy. Landing of projectile – gravitational potential energy converted to kinetic energy again. Impact – kinetic energy converted to heat and damage to target . Chapter 7 Problem A train traveling 1m/s strikes a bumper consisting of a spring with constant 1000N/m. The train weighs 5000kg. •How far does the train compress the spring •What is the maximum acceleration experienced by the train?...
