STEM Lessons for College Students

7.23 .. A 2.50-kg mass is pushed against a horizontal spring of force constant 25.0 N>cm on a frictionless air table. The spring is attached to the tabletop and the mass is not attached to the spring in any way. When the spring has been compressed enough to store 11.5 J of potential energy in it the mass is suddenly released from rest. (a) Find the greatest speed the mass reaches. When does this occur? (b) What is the greatest acceleration of the mass and when does it occur?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
