*I am lost on a bunch of different problems, and this is one of them. Please note that I am NOT asking for final answers, just some guidance so that I can figure out how to do the problem!!! I know that a lot of times on this site it is commented that we are fishing for answers, but I just need some guidance on some stuff I honestly cannot figure out how to do, no matter how easy it might seem to others.

A 18.0 N package of whole wheat flour is suddenly placed on the pan of a scale such as you find in grocery stores. The pan is supported from below by a vertical spring of force constant 315 N/m.

If the pan has negligible weight, find the maximum distance the spring will be compressed if no energy is dissipated by friction.
Answer expressed in cm.


Force= k*distance

Solve for distance
