Problem

Review. A light spring has unstressed length 15.5 cm. It is described by Hooke’s law with spring constant 4.30 N/m. One end of the horizontal spring is held on a fixed vertical axle, and the other end is attached to a puck of mass m that can move without friction over a horizontal surface. The puck is set into motion in a circle with a period of 1.30 s. (a) Find the extension of the spring x as it depends on m. Evaluate x for (b) m = 0.070 0 kg, (c) m = 0.140 kg, (d) m = 0.180 kg, and (e) m = 0.190 kg. (f) Describe the pattern of variation of x as it depends on m.
