- Homework Statement
- A block of mass m=2.54kg sliding along a rough horizontal surface is traveling at a speed

vo= 10 m/s when it strikes a massless spring head-on (see Figure below) compressing the

spring. If the maximum compression is 10 cm and the spring constant is 25kN/m, what is

the coefficient of kinetic friction of the horizontal surface.

- Relevant Equations
- Well since this has spring constants I guess I'd have 1/2 kx^2.

I don't really know how to begin this problem. I need some advice
