A 20 kg student is about to go down a slide. There is a 3 N frictional force opposing his movement. Assume his velocity at the top of the slide is 0 m/s. Find his velocity at the bottom of the slide.

A student is about to be launched from a spring loaded canon. The student weighs 60 kg and the spring constant is 200 N/kg. Find the students velocity the moment he leaves the canon if the spring is compressed, x = 3 m. Also find the students velocity after the spring has decompressed to x = 2 m.

In the system of two blocks and a spring shown below, blocks 1 and 2 are connected by a string that passes over a pulley. The initially unstretched spring connects block 1 to a ridged wall. Block 1 is released from rest, initially slides to the right, and is eventually brought to rest by the spring and the friction on the horizontal surface. Which of the following is true of the energy of the system during the process?

E. The potential energy lost by block 2 is greater in magnitude than the potential energy gained by the spring

In the situation above, after block 1 comes to rest, the force exerted on the rope must be equal in magnitude to

A. Zero

B. the frictional force on block 1

C. the vector sum of the force on block 1 due to the friction and tension in the spring

D. the sum of the weights of the two blocks

E. Shiang doesn't care, he just wants to sleep

F. the difference in the weights of the two blocks
