Dynamics: Block attached to spring on incline with friction

4. A Constant force F is applied to a body of weight W resting on an inclined surface which the coefficient of friction is The body is restrained by a spring having a spring constant of K. Compute the velocity of the body in terms of F and other parameters that are given when the body has moved from rest a distance up the incline of 3/28. Initially the spring is compressed a distance of 8.


Solution Summary

A block attached to spring placed on an incline with friction and a force is applied. The velocity at specific extension is calculated.
