Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 11:13pm.

A mass, m1 = 5.5 kg, is in equilibrium while
connected to a light spring of constant k =
132 N/m that is fastened to a wall (see a). A
second mass, m2 = 10.9 kg, is slowly pushed
up against mass m1, compressing the spring
by the amount Ai = 0.17 m (see b). The
system is then released, causing both masses
to start moving to the right on the frictionless
surface. When m1 is at the equilibrium point,
m2 loses contact with m1 (see c) and moves
to the right with speed vmax.
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
Determine the value of vmax.
Answer in units of m/s
