Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Janice on Thursday, June 23, 2011 at 6:28pm.

So I did in an experiment and the results I got were the potential energy when the spring compresses is 0 and when it stretches is 1.42. This spring is vertical and has a 250 gram weight attached to it. I was very confused when i got these results because I thought the potential energy is higher when a spring compresses and when it stretches the potential energy turns into Kinetic energy.
