Hi, I am confused about something.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand how one gets the equation 1/2kx^2=mgh, and so if 1/2kx^2=0, then mgh=0, but this doesn't make sense to me. Isn't it true the energy is converted, so it's impossible to have both equal zero? One could equal zero, and the other would be at a max, or vice versa on the other end of the spectrum, but not BOTH equal zero?
