Problem 83

Relative is an important word. In Fig. 9-72, block L of mass mL ! 1.00 kg and block R of mass mR ! 0.500 kg are held in place with a compressed spring between them. When the blocks are released, the spring sends them sliding across a frictionless floor. (The spring has negligible mass and falls to the floor after the blocks leave it.) (a) If the spring gives block L a release speed of 1.20 m/s relative to the floor, how far does block R travel in the next 0.800 s? (b) If, instead, the spring gives block L a release speed of 1.20 m/s relative to the velocity that the spring gives block R, how far does block R travel in the next 0.800 s?

The full step-by-step solution to problem: 83 from chapter: 9 was answered by Sieva Kozinsky, our top Physics solution expert on 09/04/17, 09:42PM. Fundamentals of Physics was written by Sieva Kozinsky and is associated to the ISBN: 9781118230718. Since the solution to 83 from 9 chapter was answered, more than 345 students have viewed the full step-by-step answer. The answer to “Relative is an important word. In Fig. 9-72, block L of mass mL ! 1.00 kg and block R of mass mR ! 0.500 kg are held in place with a compressed spring between them. When the blocks are released, the spring sends them sliding across a frictionless floor. (The spring has negligible mass and falls to the floor after the blocks leave it.) (a) If the spring gives block L a release speed of 1.20 m/s relative to the floor, how far does block R travel in the next 0.800 s? (b) If, instead, the spring gives block L a release speed of 1.20 m/s relative to the velocity that the spring gives block R, how far does block R travel in the next 0.800 s?” is broken down into a number of easy to follow steps, and 127 words. This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Fundamentals of Physics, edition: 10.
