Spring Launch Loading#

content/public/008.Energy/Conservation of Energy/Spring Launch Loading/SliderRestrictedbySpring.png

The 56 \(kg\) projectile is loaded into a spring launcher using a string for a game. It is acted upon by a constant force of 255 \(N\) via a cable as shown. The projectile begins at rest at A, with the spring it is attached to compressed by an initial amount 0.215 \(m\). The spring stiffness is \(k =\) 96 \(N/m\). Calculate the velocity of the block when it reaches point B, \(d =\) 1.03 \(m\) away. Assume \(h =\) 1.27 \(m\).
