**mechanics: spring problem**

You drop a block from rest from a height h=3 m. The block lands on the spring at height h1 = 1.5 meters (spring constant = 160Nm) and compresses it 0.5 m before the block and spring momentarilty come to rest. (The spring then pushes the block upward.) What is the mass of the ...
