ANSWERED A basket of negligible weight hangs from a vertical springscale of force constant 1500 N%2Fm. If you suddenly put an adobe brick of mass 3.00 kg in the basket, find the maximum distance that the springwill stretch.
Solve for the distance $$\displaystyle{y}_{{{f}}}$$ the spring will stretch.
Show transcribed image text A basket of negligible weight hangs from a vertical springscale of force constant 1500 N/m . If you suddenly put an adobe brick of mass3.00 kg in the basket, find the maximum distance that the springwill stretch. Solve for the distance yf the spring will stretch. force in the spring is F=kx the force in the spring is opposite of the force that isexerted gravity on the brick so Force in spring= massofbrickX accelerationof gravity= 29.43Newtons 29.43 Newtons=1500 N/m*X so X(displacement of spring)= $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{29.43}}}{{{1500}}}}={19.62}{m}{m}$$
