# A spring with a constant of #5 (kg)/s^2# is lying on the ground with one end attached to a wall. An object with a mass of #1 kg# and speed of #9 m/s# collides with and compresses the spring until it stops moving. How much will the spring compress?

The compression is

The spring constant is

The kinetic energy of the object is

This kinetic energy will be stored in the spring as potential energy.

So,

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- How much work does it take to raise a #2 kg # weight #6 m #?
- If a #2 kg# object is constantly accelerated from #0m/s# to #15 m/s# over # 12s#, how much power musy be applied at #t= 4 #?
- What is the gravitational potential energy of a # 36 kg# object on a shelf # 7/8 m # high?
- The force applied against a moving object travelling on a linear path is given by #F(x)=3x^2+e^x #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [2,3 ] #?
