A spring of negligible mass has force constant = 1800 N/m. How far must the spring be compressed for an amount 3.20 j of potential energy to be stored in it? You place the spring vertically with one end on the floor. You then drop a book of mass 1.50 kg onto it from a height of 0.600 m above the top of the spring. Find the maximum distance the spring will be compressed.
