Question

A block of mass m1

style="color:rgb(0,0,0);"> = 19.5 kg slides along a horizontal surface (with friction, μk = 0.25) a distance d = 2.55 m before striking a second block of mass m2 = 6.25kg. The first block has an initial velocity of v = 9.75 m/s. 


Assuming that block one stops after it collides with block two, what is block two's velocity after impact in m/s? 


How far does block two travel, d2 in meters, before coming to rest after the collision?
