The block compresses the spring a maximum distance of d from the spring’s initial position. There is friction between the block and the horizontal surface, but neglect air drag. a. [8 points] Choose the block + spring as your system. Write down the energy principle for this system. Identify all forms of energy involved. ! E system = W external _ forces

[7 points] With friction present, find the initial speed of the block which results in the same maximum compression the spring d.
