A mass m = 11.0 kg rests on a frictionless table and accelerated by a spring with spring constant k = 5008.0 N/m. The floor is frictionless except for a rough patch. For this rough path, the coefficient of friction is μk = 0.46. The mass leaves the spring at a speed v = 2.8 m/s.
3) The mass is measured to leave the rough spot with a final speed vf = 1.5 m/s.
How much work is done by friction as the mass crosses the rough spot?
What is the length of the rough spot?
In a new scenario, the block only makes it (exactly) halfway through the rough spot. How far was the spring compressed fro

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure, so... work done by the rough spot (friction) = 1/2*11*( 1.5^2 2.8^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the last part should be clearer... it's a little tricky but not too tough...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find W= mu*mg*d/2 that's the KE the mass had when it encountered the patch (and also the KE when it left the spring) KE=PEspring mu*mg*d/2 = 1/2 *k*x^2
