A 3.2-kg block is released 34m from a massless spring with force constant 178N/m that is fixed along a frictionless plane inclined at an angle of 27° above the horizontal. Find the maximum compression of the spring.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is what I have tried so far.

equation (1) (1/2 mv^2) = (1/2 kx^2)

equation (2) (1/2 mv^2)=d*mg(sin theta)

i used equation (2) to solve for v.

then using that value of v i solved (1)

my answer for x=2.333 meters, however that is wrong
