1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 6kg block is released from the top of a 1.0m ramp (frictionless) and slides into a horizontal spring, compressing it 45 cm. Determine the spring constant. 2. Relevant equations PEg = mgh (6*9.8*1) = 58.8 PEs = 1/2kx^2 (1/2*k*.45^2) 3. The attempt at a solution Do I set the two equations equal to each other and get 582.2 as the spring constant?
