A 3.60 kg block starts from rest and slides down a frictionless incline, dropping a vertical distance of 2.80 m, before compressing a spring of force constant 2.30*10^4 N/m. Find the maximum compression of the spring.
Any help would be appreciated, this problem is to use Spring Potential Energy; Conservation of Energy. If you could explain how you get the answer it would be greatly appreciated.
