what i did first was i set F=kx to find the force the bullet block system applied to the spring.

after solving for F, i couldnt find a way to relate force to the momentum equation

m

_{1}v

_{1i}=(m

_{1}+m

_{2})v

_{f}

Instead of worrying about the force, consider the energy stored in the spring.what i did first was i set F=kx to find the force the bullet block system applied to the spring.

(1) The collision itself. What's conserved during the collision?

(2) The compression of the spring
