As shown in figure there is a spring block system. Block of mass $500\,g$ is pressed against a horizontal spring fixed at one end to compress the spring through $5.0\,cm$ . The spring constant is $500\,N/m$ . When released, calculate the distance where it will hit the ground $4\,m$ below the spring ? $(g = 10\,m/s^2)$

- A
$1\,m$

- B
$\sqrt 2\,m$

- C
$\sqrt 3\,m$

- D
$4\,m$

In a spring gun having spring constant $100\, {N} / {m}$ a small ball $'B'$ of mass $100\, {g}$ is put in its barrel (as shown in figure) by compressing the spring through $0.05\, {m}$. There should be a box placed at a distance $'d'$ on the ground so that the ball falls in it. If the ball leaves the gun horizontally at a height of $2\, {m}$ above the ground. The value of $d$ is $....{m} .$ $\left(g=10\, {m} / {s}^{2}\right)$

Draw a plots of mechanical energy, potential energy and kinetic energy versus displacement for different position of a motion of a block attached to a spring.

The length of a spring is a when $\alpha $ force of $4\,N$ is applied on it and the length is $\beta $ when $5\,N$ force is applied. Then the length of spring when $9\,N$ force is applied is

A body of mass $1\,kg$ falls freely from a height of $100\,m,$ on a platform of mass $3\,kg$ which is mounted on a spring having spring constant $k = 1.25 \times 10^6\, N/m.$ The body sticks to the platform and the spring’s maximum compression is found to be $x.$ Given that $g = 10\,ms^{-2},$ the value of $x$ will be close to ................ $\mathrm{cm}$

The potential energy of a long spring when stretched by $2\,cm$ is $U$. If the spring is stretched by $8\,cm$, potential energy stored in it will be $.......\,U$
