I know i must use Fs= kx,

but where do I start?

Do i find Fg at 1 m?

**bobpursley**, Friday, November 6, 2009 at 10:26amI would do it with energy.

mg(h+x)=1/2 k x^2

then solve for x in each case.

**bobpursley**, Friday, November 6, 2009 at 10:39ammultiply it all out, you will get a quadratic equation. Use the quadratic formula.
