Two blocks are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley, as shown in Figure.

Two blocks are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley, as
shown in Figure. The block of mass m1 lies on a horizontal surface and is connected to a spring
of force constant k. The system is released from rest when the spring is unstretched. If the
hanging block of mass m2 falls the distance h before coming to rest, calculate the coefficient of
kinetic friction between the block of mass m1 and the surface.
