A 5.00-kg block is moving at 6.00 m/s along a frictionless, horizontal surface toward a spring with force constant k=500 N/m that is attached to a wall (the figure (Figure 1)). The spring has negligible mass.

Find the maximum distance the spring will be compressed.

If the spring is to compress by no more than 0.550 m , what should be the maximum value of v0?

Step 1

**Given:**

Mass of the block = 5 kg

Velocity of the block = 6 m/s

Spring constant = 500 N/m

Step 2

Calculating the maximum compression in the spring:

Step 3

Finding the required velo...
