Took 356 Newtons to compress a spring 0.5 metre. A 1 Kg rod contacting its end gets pushed when the spring is released.
Is that enough data to calculate the acceleration, or :
Took 356 Newtons to compress a spring. A 1 Kg rod contacting its end gets pushed during 0.1 second when the spring is released to full extension.
Is that enough data to calculate the acceleration ?
What formula should be applied ? -Ignoring friction, drag-
Is the calculated acceleration result the one at the end of spring extension; at position 0.5m away and 0.1 second from firing ?
( The initial force applied to the rod is 356 Newtons and linearly? decreases to zero in 0.5m of travel that takes 0.1 second. )
Nope, not homework
