Velocity and Net Force#

The position versus time graph of a mass on a spring is shown in the image.

Position vs. Time of Mass on Spring

Part 1#

What can you say about the velocity of the mass and the net force of the mass at \(t= {{ params.t }} s\)? (For a right-handed coordinate system, positive \(x\) is to the right)

Answer Section#

  • Velocity is negative, net force is to the left

  • Velocity is negative, net force is to the right

  • Velocity is negative, net force is zero

  • Velocity is positive, net force is to the left

  • Velocity is positive, net force is to the right

  • Velocity is positive, net force is zero

  • Velocity is zero, net force is to the left

  • Velocity is zero, net force is to the right

  • Velocity is zero, net force is zero
