A block of mass m = 3.4 kg is dropped from height h = 44 cm onto a spring of spring constant k = 1920 N/m (Fig. 8-38). Find the maximum distance the spring is compressed.
The Attempt at a Solution
Ok so I found the Potential Energy Ep=mgh. That energy should equal to 1/2kx^2.
So I set mgh = 1/2kx^2 to solve for x but my answer was wrong?
