# Spring on an Incline#

A small 3 kg block is accelerated from rest on a flat surface by a compressed spring ($$k$$ = 665 $$N/m$$) along a frictionless, horizontal surface. The block leaves the spring at the spring’s equilibrium position ($$x$$ = 0) and travels on an incline ($$\theta$$ = 25$$^{\circ}$$) with a coefficient of kinetic friction $$\mu_k$$ = 0.25. The block moves a horizontal distance $$D$$ = 7 m before coming to a stop.

## Part 1#

(a) What is the initial compression of the spring?

Please enter in a numeric value in m.

## Part 2#

(b) What is the maximum kinetic energy of the block?
