A vertical spring (ignore its mass), whose spring constant is 900 N/m, is attached to a table and is compressed 0.150m. What speed can it give to a .300-kg ball when released? How high above its original position (spring compression) will the ball fly?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 4:48 pm ad1c9bdddf
The energy stored in the spring is given by E = (1/2) K x^2
where K is the spring constant and x is the compression
Here the energy stored = (1/2) * 900 * 0.15 * 0.15
E = 10.1 ...
