A 5 g bullet is fired into a 2 kg wooden block attached to a spring with a force constant of 20 N/m. It lodges in the block, and the block and bullet compress the spring until they come to a rest. If the bullet was moving at 1000 m/s just before the collision, how far is the spring compressed when the bullet and block stop?
