(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A spring with an elastic constant of 120 N/m is compressed 0.2 m, then launches a block of mass 0.5 kg on a table with friction 0.49, and it travels 0.9 m before stopping. If the block is then released at the edge of a table top 1.2 m above the ground, how far will the block travel?

2. Relevant equations

F = 1/2KX^{2}

Vf^{2}- Vi^{2}= 2a(delta x)

Vf^{2}- Vi^{2}= -2g(delta y)

3. The attempt at a solution

I am stumped. I think these equations are relevant, but I'm not totally sure. I already solved for the friction coefficient, so some of those numbers may now be unimportant.
