A 326- g stationary air-track glider is attached to the end of an air track by a compressible spring with spring constant k = 7.02 N/m (see the figure). A 163- g glider moving at 1.27 m/s collides elastically with the stationary glider. How far does the spring compress? Assume that the air track is very much heavier than the gliders.

Step 1

Let m_{1} (163g) be the mass of the first glider moving with velocity(u_{1}) 1.27 meter per sec and m_{2 } (326 g) the mass of the second glider which is initially at rest (u_{2}=0).

Step 2

Applying conservation of momentum and energy for the glider before and after collision, the expression for the speed of the second glider after Collision can be found out.

Step 3

Substitute 163g for m1 326g for m2 and 1.27meter per sec fo...
