Q2:
In Figure, a 3.5 kg block is accelerated from rest by compressed spring of spring
constant 640 N/m. The block leaves the spring at the spring’s relaxed length and then
travels over horizontal floor with a coefficient of kinetic friction u k = 0.25. The
frictional force stops the block in distance D = 7.8 m. What is the original
compression distance of the spring?

A 4.0 kg bundle starts up a 30ᵒ incline with 128 J of kinetic energy. How far will it
slide up the incline if the coefficient of kinetic friction between bundle and incline is
0.30?
