Homework Help: physics

Posted by Michelle on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 7:05pm.

A 82.5-kg climber is scaling the vertical wall of a mountain. His safety rope is made of a material that, when stretched, behaves like a spring with a spring constant of 1.82 x 103 N/m. He accidentally slips and falls freely for 0.739 m before the rope runs out of slack. How much is the rope stretched when it breaks his fall and momentarily brings him to rest?
