- Homework Statement
- How would I find the number of oscillations that block 2 would undergo if block 2 rested on a patch of ground with friction.

- Relevant Equations
- Displacement amplitude=x0-n(4f/k)

d= 4.00 m, the mass of block one=0.200 kg, speed of block one=8.00 m/s, the period of oscillations for block two

**without friction=**0.140 s, and the spring constant= 1208.5 N/m.

I know how to solve the oscillations if block two was pulled and released:

For this equation, I have the values for k, but I'm not sure how to change it so rather than being from the distance pulled(x0), instead of for the energy from block one when they collide.

Thanks!
