Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anne on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at 8:29pm.

A vertical spring with a spring constant of 400 N/m is mounted on the floor. From directly above the spring, which is unstrained, a 0.30 kg block is dropped from rest. It collides with and sticks to the spring, which is compressed by 2.7 cm in bringing the block to a momentary halt. Assuming air resistance is negligible, from what height (in cm) above the compressed spring was the block dropped?
