A 2.4 kg dynamics cart with a linear elastic spring attached to its front end is moving at 1.5 m/s [W] when it collides head on with a stationary 3.6 kg cart.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the velocity of each cart at minimum separation?

The answer is 0.6 m/s [W]

Can anyone show me the steps?
