The cable of an elevator of mass = 5320 kg snaps when the elevator is a rest at one of the floors of a skyscraper. At this point the elevator is a distance = 31.6 m above a cushioning spring whose spring constant is = 11700 N/m. A safety device clamps the elevator against the guide rails so that a constant frictional force of = 18158 N opposes the motion of the elevator. Find the maximum distance by which the cushioning spring will be compressed.
