a)Find the maximum distance the spring compresses

b)Find the maximum height the 100gram block reaches after the collision.

I have no idea with this problem........someone help me......

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 +m2v2

m1 being mass 1 = 0.1kg

m2 being 0.4 kg

u1 being =2 m/s

u2 = 0 m/s as its stationary

then work out the momentum of the second block as this would be equal to the force on the spring which would follow the equation

F = kx

where k is 500 N/m and thus u have the distance x

and then its pray someone with more brains than me gives u an answer otherwise ul b stuck on it all night long...lol...sorry mate
