This is Problem 10.46 from the Engineering Physics Book by Knight. A vertical spring with k = 490 N/m is standing on the ground. You are holding a 5.0 kg block just above the spring, not quite touching it. a.) How far does the spring compress if you let go of the block suddenly? b.) How far does the spring compress if you slowly lower the block to the point where you can remove your hand without disturbing it? I have missed class 3 days in a row (sick) and do not know what to do at all. That being said, thorough answers are appreciated.
