**drwls**, Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 12:05pmIf X is maximum spring compression, and H is the height from which the block falls (0.48 m), conservation of energy tell you that

M g (H + X) = (1/2) k X^2

where k is the spring's force constant.

Solve for X

Take the positive root of the resulting quadratic equation.
