1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bullet with mass 20 grams and velocity 100 m/s collides with a wooden block of mass 2 kg. The wooden block is initially at rest, and is connected to a spring with k = 800 N/m. The other end of the spring is attached to an immovable wall. What is the maximum compression of the spring? 2. Relevant equations p=mv K=.5mv^2 Spring potential energy = .5kx^2 3. The attempt at a solution I tried doing M(bullet)V(initial) = [M(bullet) + M(block)][Vfinal], and then I used that final velocity in the energy equation .5mv^2 = .5kx^2 to find x. I keep getting the answer to be .49 meters, but this isn't correct. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
