A 0.63kg metal sphere oscillates at the end of a vertical spring. As the spring stretches from 0.13 to 0.22 m (relative to its unstrained length), the speed of the sphere decreases from 5.95 to 4.75 m/s. What is the spring constant of the spring? (The sphere hangs from the bottom of the spring.)
Answer in N/m

The increase in potential energy in stretching from 0.13 to 0.22 m equals the decrease in kinetic energy of the metal sphere. That will let you solve for the spring constant k.
k [(.22)^2 (.13)^2] = (m/2)[(5.95)^2  (4.75)^2]
You know the mass m, so solve for k.,
