Textbook Problem

A weight is connected to a spring that is suspended vertically from the ceiling. If the weight is displaced downward from its equilibrium position and released, it will oscillate up and down. (a) If air resistance is neglected, will the total mechanical energy of the system (weight plus Earth plus spring) be conserved? (b) How many forms of potential energy are there for this situation?

(a)

To determine
Whether the total mechanical energy of the system is conserved when the air resistance is neglected.

Explanation

According to conservation of energy, if there is no non-conservative force is acting on the system, the total energy of the system will be conserved.

Since, the air resistance is neglected and there is no ...

(b)

To determine
How many forms of potential energy are there in the situation.
