momentum before = momentum after let mc= the mass of the cannon mb= the mass of thecannonball v1= speed of cannon ball mcvc+ mbvb= mcvc'+mbvb' 0 + 0 = 100 kg * vc'+10 kg * 90 m/svc' = 9 m/s

A 2.4-kg object is attached to a horizontal spring of forceconstant k=4.5 kN/m. The spring is stretched 10 cm fromequilibrium and released. Find (a) the frequency of themotion, (b) the period, (c) the amplitude, (d) the maximum speed,and (e) the maximum acceleration. (f) When does the objectfirst reach its equilibrium position? What is itsacceleration at this time?
Two identical blocks placed one on top of the other rest on africtionless horizontal air track. The lower block isattached to a spring of spring constant k= 600 N/m. Whendisplaced slightly from its equilibrium position, the systemoscillates with a frequency of 1.8 Hz. When the amplitude ofoscillation exceeds 5 cm, the upper block starts to slide relativeto the lower one. (a) What are the masses of the twoblocks? (b) What is the coefficient of static frictionbetween the two blocks?

A 2.0-kg projectile is fired with initial velocity components \(\displaystyle{v}_{{{0}{x}}}={30}\) m/s and \(\displaystyle{v}_{{{0}{y}}}={40}\) m/s from a point on the earth's surface. Neglect any effects due to air resistance. What is the kinetic energy of the projectile when it reaches the highest point in its trajectory? How much work was done in firing the projectile?
