1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 500-g block is released from rest and slides down a frictionless track that begins 2.00 m above the horizontal as shown in the figure. At the bottom of the track, where the surface is horizontal, the block strikes and sticks to a light spring with a constant of 20 N/m.find the maximum distance the spring is compressed. 2. Relevant equations I am pretty sure that this is just an MGH type problem, so I used : mgh=1/2kx^2 3. The attempt at a solution Using the above formula, I calculated: (.500)(9.8)(2)=.5(20)(x^2) Solving the equation for value x i get .99 m. Can anyone advise me to whether this is correct or not?
