Two air blocks with masses 224 g and
130 g are equipped with identical springs
(k = 2490 N/m). The blocks move toward
each other with identical speeds of 1 m/s on a
horizontal air track and collide, compressing
Find the maximum compression of the
spring attached to the 224 g mass.
The Attempt at a Solution
okay so the thing that I don't understand is do the springs split the kinetic energy from the objects equally and if they do I still do not understand what I'm doing wrong.
