a). For Spring 2, Spring force: F=k*x, x=0.6-0.1 =0.5 (m), Spring Force = object weight = 3 (N)
k = F/ x =3/0.5= 6 (N/m)
b.) For Spring 3, F= k*x, x=1.1-0.1

2D motion: Rule of thumb: treat horizontal directions motion separately from vertical motion.
Initial velocity v0 may have two components: in x direction and y direction, v0x or v0y. Use
the given angle and sin or cos to calculate v0x or

Problem 1. A 100 kg person stands on a scale.
a.) What would be the scale readout?
(How does this compare with the person's weight?)
b.) If the person stands on the scale in an elevator accelerating upwards at 5 m/s2, what is the scale r
