7.70: a) In this problem, use of algebra avoids the intermediate calculation of the spring constant k . If the original height is h and the maximum compression of the spring is d , then 2 2 1 ) ( kd d h mg = + . The speed needed is when the spring is compressed 2 d , and from conservation of energy, 2 2 1 2 2 1 ) 2 ( ) 2 ( mv d k d h mg = - + . Substituting for k in terms of d h + , , 2 1 4 ) ( 2 2 mv d h mg d h mg = + - + which simplifies to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
