Homework Help: physics help please...

Posted by julie on Monday, December 20, 2010 at 7:05pm.

A light spring of constant k = 170 N/m rests vertically on the bottom of a large beaker of water. A 5.70 kg block of wood (density = 650 kg/m3) is connected to the spring and the mass-spring system is allowed to come to static equilibrium. What is the elongation, ÄL, of the spring?

im using the equation of the spring constant... F=kx F being B-weight. and i keep coming up with the wrong answer. please help me!!!
