The block rests on a frictionless surface.

A 0.500- block is attached to a horizontal spring that is at its equilibrium length, and whose force constant is 25.0 . The block rests on a frictionless surface. A 5.10×10−2- wad of putty is thrown horizontally at the block, hitting it with a speed of 2.50 and sticking. How far does the putty-block system compress the spring?
