A 0.250 kg block on a vertical spring with a spring constant of 5.00 103 N/m is pushed downward, compressing the spring 0.120 m. When released, the block leaves the spring and travels upward vertically. How high does it rise above the point of release?

  1. Equate the stored spring potential energy to the potential energy change at the highest elevation.

    (1/2)k*X^2 = M g H

    Solve for H
