A 750-gram air-track glider slides along at a speed of 0.85 m/s until it hits a spring attached to the end of the very heavy track. The spring is compressed by 1.35 cm at the maximum compression. What is the value of the spring constant k? I need to see each step and formula to solve this question.

In this example, the kinetic energy from the glider will be transfered to the spring as its potential energy.

First we ...
