A 20lb ball is 1 ft. in diameter and has a angular velocity of 300 rpm when it is 2 ft. away from the plate. The coefficient of rolling friction between the surface and the ball is μs = 0.3. It strikes the 1-ft. high, 10-lb plate that is held in place by an unstretched spring of stiffness k = 400 lb/ft. Take e = 0.8 between the ball and the plate and assume that the plate slides smoothly.

Find the maximum compression imparted to the spring.
