b. If the crate is dropped on a large vertical spring that has a spring constant of 200,000 N/m, how far does it compress the spring?

**anon**, Monday, December 12, 2011 at 1:54pma.) P = (mgd)/t so just plug in and solve

b.) mgy(spring) + 1/2ky(spring) = mgy(crate)

y(spring) = mgy(crate) / (mg+1/2k) and now you can plug in again and solve
