A block of mass m1 = 1.00 kg slides along a frictionless table with a speed of 16.0 m/s. Directly in front of it, and moving in the same direction, is a block of mass m2 = 6.00 kg moving at 8.00 m/s. A massless spring with a spring constant k = 1320 N/m is attached to the backside of m2. When the blocks collide, what is the maximum compression (in meters) of the spring?
