Problem 15P

A mass sitting on a horizontal, frictionless surface is attached to one end of a spring; the other end is fixed to a wall. 3.0 J of work is required to compress the spring by 0.12 m. If the mass is released from rest with the spring compressed, the mass experiences a maximum acceleration of 15 m/s2. Find the value of (a) the spring stiffness constant and (b) the mass.

Step-by-Step Solution:

SolutionStep 1We have to find out the temperature of the system if the provided average kinetic energy isdoubled. So, the equation for average kinetic energy, K avg.(3/2)k B Where, k - Boltzmann constant = 1.38 × 10 -23J/K B T - Temperature of the system Provided, T = 20 1
