A 0.260 kg block on a vertical spring with a spring constant of 5.00x10^3 N/m is pushed downward, compressing the spring 0.100 m. When released, the block leaves the spring and travels upward vertically. How high does it rise above the point of release?

  • Physics -

    It travels up until the gravitational energy gain, m g h, equals the potential energy of the compressed spring,
    (1/2) k X^2.

    Solve for h
