If a masss of 65kg is dropped 4.3m onto a spring with a stiffness coefficient of 6.2x10^4 n/m, how far is the spring depressed?

• physics -

M g (H +x) = (1/2)kx^2

Solve for x.

H = 4.3 m
k is the spring constant
M is the mass

Thanks

You're welcome.

They may want you to solve it without the x on the left side. That will give you nearly the same answer, and make solving easier, but it will be wrong. Gravity continues to act as the spring is compressed.
