The cable of an elevator of mass M = 1900 kg snaps when the elevator is at rest at one of the floors of a skyscraper. At this point the elevator is a distance d = 10.6 m above a cushioning spring whose spring constant is k = 8500 N/m. A safety device clamps the elevator against the guide rails so that a constant frictional force of f = 14499 N opposes the motion of the elevator. Find the maximum distance by which the cushioning spring will be compressed.
