A 0.500-kg glider, attached to the end of an ideal spring with force constant k = 450 N/m, undergoes SHM with an amplitude of 0.040 m. Compute (a) the maximum speed of the glider; (b) the speed of the glider when it is at x = - 0.015 m; (c) the magnitude of the maximum acceleration of the glider; (d) the acceleration of the glider at x = - 0.015 m; (e) the total mechanical energy of the glider at any point in its motion.

Problem 27E Step 1of 3 Introduction A spring of spring constant k=400 N/m is loaded with a glider of mass of 0.5 kg. The system undergoes a SHM. We need to find the parameters of the SHM. We know that, Given, Mass of glider m=0.5kg k=400N/m Amplitude=0.04m Step 2 of 3 (a) Vmax1.2m/s (b) Vmaxt x=0.015m A=0.03m V=1.1m/s (c) amaxccurs when x=A a =13.5m/s 2 max (d)At x=0.015m 2 ax24m/s
