**Spring forces, etc.... :(**

## Homework Statement

Doing past exams before a real exam and i completely missed this whole section of lectures. lol

A Block of mass 0.800kg is given an intitial velocity v = 1.2m/s to the left and collides with a light spring of force constant k = 50.0N/m

## Homework Equations

If the surface is frictionless, calculate the maximum compression of the spring after the collision.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have absolutely no idea how to begin this questions. any help with these sorts of questions or this one in particular would be great
