Physics 2211: Matter and Interactions Chapter 7: potential energy of springs Constant Energy in an oscillating spring mass system As the compressed spring expands the kinetic energy of the block increases, and the spring potential energy decreases As the block passes through the rest length of the spring what is the potential energy associated with the spring? When the spring is fully stretched, what is the kinetic energy of the block? As the stretched spring contracts the kinetic energy of the block increases, and the spring potential energy decreases

Physics 2211: Matter and Interactions Chapter 7: potential energy of springs PRS: A horizontal spring has a mass attached which can move with negligible friction. You stretch the spring and release the mass from rest. For the resulting motion, which of the following statements are TRUE? (1) When the spring is (momentarily) fully compressed, K has its largest value. (2)
