3 N/m is pushed downward, compressing the spring 0.0600 m.

When released, the block leaves the spring and travels upward vertically.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s^

2. How high does it rise above the point of release?

Answer in units of m

**drwls**, Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 6:17amThe potential energy of the compressed spring at release equals the potential energy gained at the maximum distance above the release point. Let that distnce be X and the initial spring compression be d = 0.06 m

(1/2) k d^2 = m g X

k is the spring constant, which you know is 4120 N/m.

m = 0.28 kg

Solve for X
