A spring with spring constant 150 N/m hangs from a ceiling. A 2.00 kg mass is attached to the end of the spring and released.

a) How far below its unstretched position will the mass be in equilibrium?

b) How far below its unstretched position will the mass fall?

c) Taking the equilibrium point as y = 0, express the position of the mass as a function of time.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For part a) the answer i got was 0.1308m but I am not sure how to solve the rest :)
