Two equal masses, m, are connected by a compressed, massless spring of known stiffness, k, as shown. The bottom mass is in contact with a
horizontal table and the initial velocity is zero.
What is the minimum compression of the spring, such that after being released from rest, the
bottom mass JUST loses contact with the table for an instant but will never leave the table?
