Example 1 A 0.98 kg block slides on a frictionless horizontal surface with speed 1.32m/s. The block encounters an unstretched spring with force constant 245N/m, as shown. a) how far is the spring compressed before the block comes to rest? b) how long is the block in contact with the spring before it comes to rest? c) how far is the spring compressed when the kinetic energy of the block is equal to the potential energy stored in the spring?
