1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations Fs = -kx w = mg 3. The attempt at a solution I said that when the spring is stretched out at its max, the weight pulling down will equal the force of the spring pulling up. Fs=w -kx = mg -(1500)(x) = (3)(-9.81) x = 0.01962 m The solution key tells me the max stretch is double this amount, 0.039 m. What is wrong with my approach?
