Can you please clarify your response to my post Wednesday April 4th at 8:53pm and 8:54pm.

Thanks for all of your help!!!

pleasde repost it.

Yes, repost it. Go to it, copy, and paste it here. Thanks.

A vertical spring with a spring constant of 450 N/m is mounted on the floor. From directly above the spring, which is unstrained, a 0.30 kg block is dropped from rest. It collides with and sticks to the spring, which is compressed by 3.0 cm in bringing the block to a momentary halt. Assuming air resistance is negligible, from what height (in cm) above the compressed spring was the block dropped?

The spring compression had 1/2 k x^2 of work done on it. Assuming no losses to friction, then the energy that went into it was mg(h+x). Calculate h

So what is the question?

I lead you to mg(h+x)= 1/2 kx^2

solve for h. If questions, you have to ask specific questions.

Please tell me where I went wrong.

mg (h+x) = 1/2 K x^2

h = 1/2 (450)(3.0)^2/0.30kg x 9.81

h = 687.054

Please disregard. I figured it out. Thanks!
