A basket of neglible wieght hangs from a vertical spring scale of constant force 1500N/m. If you sundally put a 3.0 Kg adobe brick in the basket, find the maximum distance that the spring will stretch. If, instead, you released the brick from 1.0 m above the basket, by how much will the spring stretch at its maximum elongation?
