Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Carden on Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 8:27pm.

A 0.409 kg block is attached to a horizontal spring that is at its equilibrium length, and whose force constant is 19.5 N/m. The block rests on a frictionless surface. A 0.0500 kg wad of putty is thrown horizontally at the block, hitting it with an initial speed of 2.32 m/s and sticking. How far does the putty-block system compress the spring?

My answer .366 is 10% off. Why/How?
