In the figure below, block 2 (mass 1.4 kg) is at rest on a frictionless surface and touching the end of an unstretched spring of spring constant 170 N/m. The other end of the spring is fixed to a wall. Block 1 (mass 2.0 kg), traveling at speed v1 = 4.0 m/s, collides with block 2, and the two blocks stick together. When the blocks momentarily stop, by what distance is the spring

2. Relevant equations

m1v1=m2v2

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted the solution but I am confused about the 170N/m

How would I use that information and relate it to the equations of inelastic collision?
