The figure shows block 1 of mass 0.155 kg sliding to the right over a frictionless elevated surface at a speed of 7.65 m/s. The block undergoes an elastic collision with stationary block 2, which is attached to a spring of spring constant 1298 N/m. (Assume that the spring does not affect the collision.) After the collision, block 2 oscillates in SHM with a period of 0.140 s, and block 1 slides off the opposite end of the elevated surface, landing a distance d from the base of that surface after falling height *h* = 4.60 m. What is the value of *d*?

Step 1

Since the spring does not affect the collision, we can use the elastic collision equations.

The mass of block 2 can be calculates from the period of SHM.

Step 2

At this point, the rebound speed of bloc...
