Two masses m1 and m2 are connected by a massless spring of spring constant k. The spring is at its equilibrium length and the masses are both at rest; there is no gravitational field. Suddenly m2 is given a velocity . Assume that  is so small that the two masses never collide in their subsequent motion. Describe the motion of both masses. What are their maximum and minimum separations?
