Textbook Problem

A spring in a toy gun has a spring constant of 9.80 N/m and can be compressed 20.0 cm beyond the equilibrium position. A 1.00-g pellet resting against the spring is propelled forward when the spring is released. (a) Find the muzzle speed of the pellet. (b) If the pellet is fired horizontally from a height of 1.00 m above the floor, what is its range?

a)

To determine
The muzzle speed of the pellet.

Explanation

Given info: The spring constant of the spring is 9.80Nm-1 . The spring is compressed 20.0cm beyond the equilibrium position. The mass of the pellet resting against the spring is 1.00g .

Explanation:

From the conservation of total energy at equilibrium and turning position,

12kA2=12mvmax2

Solve for vmax ,

vmax=Akm

Substitute 20.0cm for A , 9.80Nm-1 for g and 1

b)

To determine
The horizontal range of the pellet.
