Questions & Answers

what is velocity
Austine Reply
speed per unit time is called velocity. it is a vector quantity
Mukulika
velocity is distances overall time taking,it is a vector quantity, the units is metre per second.
Samuel
what is the difference between resultant force and net force
Ogali Reply
net force is when you add forces numerically I.e. the total sum of all positive and negative or balanced and unbalanced forces. resultant force is a single vector which is the combination or addition of all x and y axes vector component forces in a system.

If the block is displaced to a position y , the net force becomes Fnet=k(y−y0)−mg=0Fnet=k(y−y0)−mg=0 . But we found that at the equilibrium position, mg=kΔy=ky0−ky1mg=kΔy=ky0−ky1 . Substituting for the weight in the equation yields. Show me an equation of graph.
