A 5kg block slides along a frictionless surface at 8 m/s toward a second block that is 2kg and attached to the end of a spring,The spring has a constant of 250N/m . When the blocks collide they stick together.

What is the speed of the two blocks immediately after the collision?

5.71 m/s

What impulse is given to the first block during the collision?

4.62 m/s

How far will the spring compress?

3m/s

What is the maximum speed they will attain once they begin oscillating on the spring?

12 m/s
