Question details

Problem 13.57 A spring-mass oscillator consists of a mass and a spring connected as shown. The coordinate s measures the displacement of the mass relative to its position when the spring is unstretched. If the spring is linear, the mass is subjected to a deceleration proportional to s. Suppose that a-4s m/s and that you give the mass a velocity v 1.2 m/s in the position s 0 Part A How far will the mass move to the right before the spring brings it to a stop? Express your answer with the appropriate units. Figure Value Units Submit Request Answer ▼ Part B What will be the velocity of the mass when it has returned to the position s = 0 ? (Figure 1) Express your answer with the appropriate units.
