Physics - please help!!
A 395.0 g block is dropped onto a vertical spring with a spring constant k = 252.0 N/m. The block becomes attached to the spring, and the spring compresses 0.29 m before momentarily stopping. While the spring is being compressed, what work is done by the block's weight? What ...

Physics
An unstretched spring with spring constant 37 N/cm is suspended from the ceiling. A 3.3 kg mass is attached to the spring and let fall. To the nearest tenth of a centimeter, how far does it stretch the spring?

A USU Today survey found that of the gun owners surveyed 55% favor stricter gun laws. The survey Involved 500 gun owners. Test the claim that a majority (more than 50%) of gun owners favor stricter gun laws. Use a .05 significance level.
