Block #1 (m=2.00 kg) traveling to the right at 5.00 m/s along a level frictionless surface collides elastically with block #2 (m=3.00 kg) attached to a massless spring of spring constant 275 N/m. Assume that block #2 was at rest before the collision.
(a) calculate the celocity of each of the two blocks immediately after the collision
(b) calculate the maximum compression distance of the spring
The Attempt at a Solution
I found the answer to part a by using the equation m#1*V#1+m#2V#2=(m#1+m#2)V`
but i'm not sure how to go about part b
