You have a 2.4 m high platform that is level on top. A spring launcher is located on the top so that it launches objects horizontally. You want to launch a 0.70 kg ball so that it hits at target on the ground 6.0 m away from the base. If the spring constant is 500 N/m, what distance must you compress the spring?
