A block with mass 0.50 kg is forced against a horizontal spring of negligible mass, compressing the spring a distance of 0.20 m. When released, the block moves on a horizontal tabletop for 1.00 m before coming to rest. The spring constant k is 100 N/m. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the table top.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 4, 2020, 12:35 am ad1c9bdddf
When the spring is compressed at 0.20m by the block, to the total energy of the system is the potential energy of the pring as
T1 = 0.5kx^2, where k is the spring constant k = 100 N/m, and x =0.20m, ...
The solution shows how to calculate the between the block and the table top in detail.
