An 11g bullet is fired with a muzzle velocity of 679m/s. What is the kinetic energy of the bullet? If the bulle hits a target that is attached to a spring with a spring constant of 1500N/m how far will the spring compress when struck by the bullet?

    I know. KE=2,535,725.5 J. But how do you find the spring compression?
