A 0.260 kg block on a vertical spring with a spring constant of 5.00x10^3 N/m is pushed downward, compressing the spring 0.100 m. When released, the block leaves the spring and travels upward vertically. How high does it rise above the point of release?

It travels up until the gravitational energy gain, m g h, equals the potential energy of the compressed spring,
(1/2) k X^2.
Solve for h
