A spring with a constant of #6/7 (kg)/s^2# is lying on the ground with one end attached to a wall. An object with a mass of #3/5 kg# and speed of #5/3 m/s# collides with and compresses the spring until it stops moving. How much will the spring compress?
So, to find the total compression of the string, re-arrange the given formula into
Solving using a calculator (never us it all the time), we get the above given answer justified to being so weird.
