I. A 2kg block is falling at a speed of 20 m/s and is 18 meters above the spring. The spring constant is 4134 N/m, to the nearest tenth of a cm how far is the spring compressed?

II. In the previous problem to the nearest hundredth of a meter to what height will the block rise after it hits and leaves the spring?

Can I get some direction on this problem? It really stumps me. I know the first one will lead to the second answer.
