A 0.85 kg block slides 3.3 m across a frictionless, horizontal table at 2.2 m/s, moving left. Once the block hits the spring, it sticks, compressing the spring 70 cm before the block stops and reverses direction. The block then continues to bounce back and forth, still attached to the spring. The spring constant is 8.4 N/m. Ignore air resistance.

(b) [3 points] Plot the velocity of the block as a function of time, with t = 0 when the block is 3.3 m away from the spring, sliding across the table. Use the same coordinate system and plot two full oscillations of the spring.
