A 1.5kg crate falls from a height of 2.0m onto an industrial spring scale with a spring constant of 1.5 X 10^5 N/m. At its greatest compression the reading on the scale is:
My work:
mgh= PE
(1.5kg*9.81m/s*2.0m)= 30J
The potential energy of the crate is 30J
The Force of the crate is 1.5kg* 9.81m= 14.75
Would the force of the crate be equal to the force of compression
Thank you
