# Question: A 0 350 kg block moving vertically upward collides with a light

A 0.350-kg block moving vertically upward collides with a light vertical spring and compresses it 4.50 cm before coming to rest. If the spring constant is 50.0 N/m, what was the initial speed of the block? (Ignore energy losses to sound and other factors during the collision.)
