Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Chelsea on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 10:05am.

An object with a mass of 20.1 kg is hung from two identical springs vertical. The springs both stretch 0.23 meters from equilibrium with the attached mass. One of the those springs is placed on a horizontal surface without friction and the mass of 20.1 kg is held still next to the spring after it has been compressed 1.83 meters from equilibrium. The 20.1 kg mass is then released and it collides on the horizontal surface with a 2.9 kg mass on the horizontal surface which is initially at rest. After the collision, both masses travel up a frictionless incline. What is the maximum height (above the base of the incline) both masses reach in meters?
