Answer to Question #1656 in Mechanics | Relativity for reyne
Consider a large spring, hanging vertically, with spring constant k = 3220 N/m. If the spring is stretched 25.0 cm from equilibrium and a block is attached to the end, the block stays still, neither accelerating upward nor downward. What is the mass of the block? answer should be in kg.
The weight of the blok (mg) is balanced by the elactic force of spring (k Δx), thus mg = k Δx; m = k Δx/ g = 3220[N/m]* 0.25[m]/9.8[m/s2] = 82.14 [kg].
I'm highly satisfied with the quality of your work. Thank you very much!
While I'm very impressed with the math, physics and find computer science help perfect... It was still hard for me to find electrical engineering help with your site.
One of the areas I will need help with are circuit analysis.
