1. A 3-kg object is released from rest at a height of 5m on a curved, frictionless ramp. At the foot of the ram is a spring of force constant k = 100 N/m. The object slides down the ramp and into the spring, compressing it a distance x before coming to rest. (a) Find x (b) Does the object continue to move after it comes to rest? If yes, how high will it go up the slope before it comes to rest U =  3(9,21)(5)=147,15 U5 = 1/2(100x^2 = 50x^2 ...? NO. There is an elephant in the way
Not only is there an elephant, but it’s levitating.
