### Acceleration in spring-mass system [closed]

So the original question is to find the maximum elongation in the spring: https://imgur.com/a/hI4o3HH The solution used $F_{net}=ma$ for both the masses.But,they assumed same acceleration for both of ...

### Elongation of a spring [closed]

Here are two springs,both initially at their relaxed length. But,the 2nd one is connected with masses $m_1$ and $m_2$. I pull on both the springs on both sides with a constant force $F$. What will be ...

### Spring system sudden change [closed]

I have considered the situation at time t = 0, which gives resultant force as F = ma = 2kl and at time t = dt, ...

### Alternate method for spring block problem [closed]

Here in the diagram below, we have a linear spring attached to blocks. The problem states that the ball A is released from the rest when the spring is at its natural length. For block B to leave ...

### Does spring stop applying force as soon as we cut it?

Does spring stop applying force just after we cut it? Like in this image will $F'$ be zero? The question arises because i have solved a few problems in which it says we cut the spring but we ...

### Good question on spring potential energy [closed]

A Spring of constant 100 Newton per metre is stretched by applying equal forces each of magnitude F at the two ends the energy stored in the spring is 200 Joules .Now the spring is cut into two equal ...

### Question related to work done by spring [closed]

I was trying this question: A block of mass 250g is kept on a vertical spring of spring constant 100N/m fixed from below. The spring is now compressed to have a length 10cm shorter than its natural ...

### Need help understanding lagrangian applied to mass on spring problem [closed]

I am interested in learning physics, and I was trying to learn about the Lagrangian method for classical mechanics through https://scholar.harvard.edu/files/david-morin/files/cmchap6.pdf, but I ...

### Do we consider a spring to be a constraint in classical mechanics. If yes/no why so?

I was brushing up on my DOF concepts before moving on to Lagrangian mechanics. One of my professors told me that a spring is not considered a constraint but his explanation was not satisfactory in my ...

### It's more like a simple math question but how does this process to that? [closed]

I tried to adjust the equation multiple times to make it look like the second one, but I kept failing. Can someone please let me know how?

### Is there a force associated with relativistic length contraction?

EDIT: It appears there is a position taken by some, that there is no force measured and the chain drive does not shorten at all, however fast the chain is moving in the lab. I would genuinely ...

### How is a resonant bandpass filter similar/different from a damped mass-spring oscillator? They seem to behave both similar and different in testing

Background I am using resonant bandpass filters as musical oscillators. One can excite an array of them at harmonic frequencies and given Q values for a note by, for example, running a burst of noise ...
