I have posted this question. I have considered that it may not seem like a homework question. Instead I have just asked if energy could be used to calculate the parameters needed apart from the momentum way. I have also written the answer to be 1.3 just to indicate my answer was wrong. Why is this question still closed?

    $\begingroup$ I have considered that it may not seem like a homework question No, definitely looks like homework. Have you checked the two links in the close banner (more specifically the one for homework-like questions) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Physicsathighschool rephrase it as a conceptual questions. See for instance this question $\endgroup$ Sep 15 at 9:10
  • $\begingroup$ @ZeroTheHero. It seems I have followed the example mentioned in your link. I have made sure to include my approach without paying attention to the numerical value. I have also asked if energy could be used to find the extension. What is wrong with this? $\endgroup$ Sep 15 at 10:04

    $\begingroup$ Your question still looks like a homework question. In addition, it is not very clear: the (presumably additional) extension due to the gas would be $0$ unless there is gas on only one side of your spring. Finally, "please advice" is basically asking for someone to solve the problem for you. $\endgroup$ Sep 15 at 10:55

    $\begingroup$ You need to isolate where is the conceptual issue with your problem, not ask for advice on how to solve it. $\endgroup$ Sep 15 at 10:55

    $\begingroup$ "Why is this question considered of low quality?" Because it is. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Physicsathighschool "I have changed it twice" You've changed some wording, but it's still asking "how do I solve this problem". Try changing it to something that doesn't involve asking us how to solve your homework. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Physicsathighschool I don't know what you mean by "now" in the above comment. The same problem has persisted since you first asked the question: you're asking us to solve your homework, which is explicitly off-topic on this site. $\endgroup$
