A mass m1 = 7.65 kg, is at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface and connected to a wall by a spring with k = 67.9 N/m, as shown in the figure. A second mass, m2 = 5.29 kg, is moving to the right at v0 = 15.3 m/s. The two masses collide and stick together.
the figure is

a) What is the maximum compression of the spring?
(in m) 2.731 m

b) How long will it take after the collision to reach this maximum compression?
(in s) 0.6857 s


i tried everything ,just found out the second one but still have a problem about the first one.
