The drawing shows a hydraulic chamber in which a spring (spring constant = 1292 N/m) is attached to the input piston, and a rock of mass 24.7 kg rests on the output plunger. The piston and plunger are at the same height, and each has a negligible mass. By how much is the spring compressed from its unstrained position?
