## Homework Statement

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`

(2)(5)+(3)(0)=(2+3)V`

v`=2m/s

but i'm not sure how to go about part b
