a block of mass 12 kg is released from rest om a frictionless incline of the angle theta=30
below the block is a spring having spring constant 10^4 N/m. the block stops momentarily when it compresses the spring by 4 cm. how far does the block move down the incline from its rest position to this stopping point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0frist mgh=1/2kx^2 the answer of h which i get it 1.70m then sin30=h/x x= 3.4 this is right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Quote: "frist mgh=1/2kx^2 the answer of h which i get it 1.70m" if 12KG drops 1.7m vertically, loss in gravitational \(PE = 12(9.8)(1.7) \simeq 200J\) if that energy is absorbed in spring k = 10^4 N/m you get extension \( \mathcal{*20*} cm\) ie \(0.5 \times 10^4 \ \times 0.2^2 = 200J\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here we have to keep in mind that the loss of potential energy of the block is the work done by that block against the spring, so that work willtransform itself in potential energy of the spring. So we can write: \[\Large mgh = \frac{1}{2}k{\delta ^2}\] dw:1434278336621:dw where \delta = 4 cm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now, since: \[\Large h = l\sin \theta = l\sin 30 = \frac{l}{2}\] we get: \[\Large mg\frac{l}{2} = \frac{1}{2}k{\delta ^2}\] and solving for l, we get: \[\Large l = \frac{{k{\delta ^2}}}{{mg}} = \frac{{{{10}^4} \times 16 \times {{10}^{  4}}}}{{12 \times 9.81}} \cong 13.6\;{\text{cm}}\]
