pogo stick has a spring with a force constant of 2.50×104 N/m, which can be compressed 12.0 cm. To what maximum height can a child jump on the stick using only the energy in the spring, if the child and stick have a total mass of 40.0 kg? Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategies for Energy.

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 1 The change in potential energy of the child and stick when he jumps to a height The change in the potential energy of the spring is According to the work energy theorem, The...
