On a frictionless horizontal surface, a 1.50 kg mass traveling at3.50 m/s collides with and sticks to 3.00 kg mass that isinitially at rest. This system then runs into an ideal spring offorce constant 50.0 N/cm.
A.) What will be the Max compression of the spring?
B.) How much mechanical energy is lost during the process?
C. During which parts of the process (The collision and compressionof the spring) is this energy lost? (Mechanical energy is lostduring collision)
