A light spring of force constant 3.85 N/m is compressed by 8.00 cm and held between a 0.250 kg block on the left and a 0.500 kg block on the right. Both blocks are at rest on a horizontal surface. The blocks are released simultaneously so that the spring tends to push them apart. What is the maximum velocity each block attains if the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is:.

A) 0
B) 0.100
C) 0.463
Assume that the coefficient of static friction is larger than that for kinetic friction.
