3. A 40-gram ball of clay is dropped from a height, h, above a cup which is attached to a spring of spring force constant, k, of 25 N/m. The ball lands in the cup, and the spring compresses a distance, x. If x is 0.506 m, then what is the maximum speed of the ball?

Answer:the maximum speed of the ball is

12.65 m/sExplanation:Given;

mass of the ball, m = 40 g = 0.04 kg

spring constant, k = 25 N/m

Apply the principle of conservation of energy;

The Elastic potential energy of the spring will be converted into Kinetic of the ball;

Therefore, the maximum speed of the ball is

12.65 m/s
