acceleration = velocity^2/radius= 10(0.15)= velocity^2

so v^2= 1.5

Then I use V to get KE = 1/2mv^2

KE= 1/2(0.043)(1.5)

KE= 0.03225

Add PE to the top of the loop PE = mgh

PE= (0.043)(10)(0.3)

PE=.0129

so then the Total E = PE + KE

TE = 1/2k x^2

PE+ KE= 1/2k x^2

.0129+ 0.03225= 1/2 (92) x^2

0.16125= 1/2 (92) x^2

0.3225 = 92x^2

0.003505 = x^2

x = minimum compression = 0.0592

Did i do everything correctly or is there a mistake somewhere?
