A 1.50 kg object is held 1.20 m above a relaxed massless vertical spring with a force constant of 310 N/m. The object is dropped onto the spring.
(a) How far does it compress the spring?
1 m
(b) How far does it compress the spring if the same experiment is performed on the moon, where g = 1.63 m/s2?
2 m
(c) Repeat part (a), but now assume that a constant air-resistance force of 0.700 N acts on the object during its motion.
3 m
