    2. Relevant equations

    k = 898 N/m
    m = 90.7g = .0907kg
    d = 27 inch = .6558m
    g = 9.8 m/s

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This is great because I was just having trouble calculating velocity tonight and finally figured it out.

    You've got the height right and a short cut I discovered to finding velocity is
    that velocity equals the square root of 2xgxh

    v=[tex]\sqrt{}2gh[/tex] so v=[tex]\sqrt{}2x9.8x217.55[/tex]
