Each of the blocks shown in figure has mass 1kg.The rear block moves with a speed of 2m/s towards the front block kept at rest.The spring attached to the front block is light and has a spring constant 50N/m/Find the maximum compression of the spring.

    When will the maximum compression take place?

    It says when both have equal velocities but why..IDK

    when distance betweeen both blocks becomes small onec thn max. compression will take place

    i want in terms of velocities,it says when they move with equal velocities,its max

    Which chapter are you on in your physics course? Energy? Because maybe the teacher wants it in those terms. The maximum compression will be when the only energy you have is potential energy in the form of .5kx^2.

    Im doing Centre of Mass,its written in HC Verma,the compression will be maximum when both move will equal velocities. The question is: Each of the blocks shown in figure has mass 1kg.The rear block moves with a speed of 2m/s towards the front block kept at rest.The spring attached to the front block is light and has a spring constant 50N/m/Find the maximum compression of the spring.

    Well you should have given that information in the beginning of the question.
