Question

# A light spring is compressed and placed horizontally between a vertical fixed wall and a block free to slide over a smooth horizontal table top as shown in the figure. The system is released from rest. The graph which represents the relation between the magnitude of acceleration ‘ a ‘ of the block and the distance ‘ x ‘ travelled by it (as long as the spring is compressed) is:

## The correct answer is:

### Let the initial compression of spring be Then the acceleration after the block travels a distance x is

\ The graph of a vs x is
