Question

One end of a spring of force constant k is fixed to a vertical wall and the other to a block of mass m resting on a smooth horizontal surface. There is another wall at a distance x0 from the block. The spring is then compressed by 2x0 and released. The time taken to strike the wall is

Correct Answer
C
Your Answer
D

Solution

The correct option is C

The total time from A to C
=tAC=tAB+tBC=(T4)+tBC
where T = time period of oscillation of spring - mass system
tBC can be obtained from, BC=ABsin(2πT)tBC 
putting BCAB=12 we obtain tBC=T12tAC=T4+T12=2π3mk
