Variable Force A block of mass m = 0.40 kg slides across a horizontal
frictionless counter with a speed of v = 0.50 m/s. It runs
into and compresses a spring of spring constant
k = 750 N/m. When the block is momentarily stopped by
750 N/ Wh th bl
the spring, by what distance d is the spring compressed? Work: variable force
