(Answer=2.09 feet/sec) c) What is the maximum height reached by the lower block (measured from the free length of the spring)? 3. The spring is permanently attached to block B. Block A is moving downwards at 5.0 feet/second when the spring is compressed 0.5 feet. Find: • speed of block B when spring is uncompressed • distance A falls before coming to a stop (Ans=3.40ft) • will block A start moving back upward after stopping? (Hint: F=Kx is the force in the spring, sum forces on B and A and see is acceleration can be up on A) A B μ =0.20 K=80 lb/ft W A =160lb W B =190lb W A =7lb W B =12lb K=100 lb/ft μ =0.20 A B 10 feet K=15 lb/inch θ =30 degrees...
