The system is released frm rest with the spring initially stretched 75 mm. The spring has a stiffness of 1050 N/m. Show that the velocity of the block after it has dropped 12 mm will be 0.371 m/s. Neglect the mass of the small pulley

HI sanchit gupta

Here one thing shoul be noted that when block falls 12 mm then spring must be streched by 2*12=24 mm


now energy balance

initial energy = 45*g*.012 +(1/2) *1050 *(.075)2

final energ   = (1/2) *45 *v2 +(1/2) *1050*(.075+.024)2


equate these two and calculate v

v=.37 m/s
