Statement of a problem № 10190


A 5-kg collar A is at rest on top of, but not attached to, a spring with stiffness k1 = 400 N/m; when a constant 150-N force is applied to the cable. Knowing A has a speed of 1 m/s when the upper spring is compressed 75 mm, determine the spring stiffness k2. Ignore friction and the mass of the pulley.
