Statement of a problem № 10412


A 0.454-kg block is attached to a horizontal spring that is at its equilibrium length, and whose force constant is 25.0 N/m. The block rests on a frictionless surface. A 0.0500-kg wad of putty is thrown horizontally at the block, hitting it with a speed of 8.94 m/s and sticking. How far does the putty-block system compress the spring?
