# A block of mass m

The spring constant is calculated as Given

The mass of the block is given as “m”, and the speed of the block is “u” and distance is “x”.

Formula Used

Using the conversation of energy, we equate the energies of spring compression and potential energy of the mass of the block, the formula of the energy stored in spring compression is And the energy stored in the block is formulated as where

The value of spring constant is denoted as “k”, the compression distance is “x”, the mass of the block is given as “m”, v is the velocity of the block.

Explanation

The velocity of the block given as “u” and after compression it becomes , making the initial kinetic energy as The total energy or the initial kinetic energy is equal to final kinetic energy and the spring compression energy.   Therefore, the spring constant is calculated as Rate this question :
