A 12 kg block slides from rest down frictionless 35 degree incline and is stopped by spring w/ constant of 3.00x10^4 N/m. The block slides 3 m from the point of release to the point of rest against spring, how far has spring compressed?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now I know this involves the equation Ws= 1/2kxmax2, but I am not sure where to go from there.
