Unformatted text preview: the track smoothly at point B. Then the ball moves along a frictionless circular track (1/4 circle from B to C, radius R = 0.500 m) and a frictionless horizontal surface. It hits against a spring with negligible mass and force constant k = 49.0 N/m, compressing the spring by Δx before it stops. (a) Is mechanical energy conserved when it is moving on the track? What is the initial mechanical energy of the ball? (b) What is the centrip...
