Given:
Spring constant, k=340 N/m
Mass of the fish, m=6.7 kg
Let the stretch in the spring be x, the force acting on the spring is given as,
F=kx=mg
Hence,
x=mgk
x=6.7×9.8340
x=0.193 m
HEnce the spring will stretch by 0.193 m.

A tow truck pulls a car that is stuck in the mud, with a force of 2500 N as in Fig P5.27 The tow cable is under tension and therefor pulls downward and to the left on the pin at its upper end. The light pin is held in equilibrium by forces exerted by the two bars A and B. Each bar is a strut that is, each is a bar whose weight is small compared to the forces it exerts, and which exerts forces only through hinge pins at its ends. Each strut exerts a force directed parallel to its length. Determine the force of tension or compression in each strut. Proceed as follows Make a guess as to which way (pushing or pulling ) each force acts on the top pin Draw a free-body diagram of the pin. Use the condition for equilibrium of the pin to translate the free-body diagram into equations. From the equations calculate the forces exerted by struts A and B. If you obtain a positive answer, you correctly guessed the direction of the force. A negative answer means the direction should be reversed, but the absolute value correction should be reversed, but the absolute value correctly gives the magnitude of the force. If a strut pulls of a pin, it is in tension. If it pushes, the strut is in compression. Identify whether each strut is in tension or in compression.

Two objects are identical and small enough that their sizes canbe ignored relative to the distance between them, which is 0.200 m.In a vacuum, each object carries a different charge, and they attract each other with a F of 1.20 N. The objects are brought into contact, so the net is shared equally, and they are returned to their initial positions. Now it is found that the object repel one another with a force whose magnitude is equal to that of the initial attractive force. What is the initial charge on each object?
