A coil spring has a spring constant of 54 N/m. If the full length of the spring is 35 cm when a 1.0-kg mass is hung from it, what is the equilibrium length of the spring when the 1.0-kg mass is removed?

I have absolutely no idea how to even start this problem; and I know I can look in the back of the book to get the answer, but I'd reallylike to understand the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :]
