Elastic and Plastic Behaviour

Elastic and Plastic Behaviour problem 13

Emily with a mass of jumps on a trampoline. Calculate the elastic energy transferred to Emily by the trampoline before the jump in each of the two cases below if Emily bounces high.

  • Assume that there are no energy losses in the jump.

  • Assume the trampoline transfers of its elastic energy to Emily.
