A spring with K=450N/m hangs vertically. You attach 202kg block to it and allow the mass to fall. What is the maximum distance the block will fall before it begins moving upward?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ans-

k=450N/m

m=2.2kg

x=?

Fnet=mg

=2.2kg*9.8N/m

=21.56 N

F=+/- kx

x=f/k

x=0.05m

Is this the max distance I calcul;ated or the new equilibrium distance? Can u give me a hint.
