1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data a mass weighing 24 pounds, attached to the end of a spring, stretches it 4 inches. Initially, the mass is released from rest from a point 3 inches above the equilibrium position 2. Relevant equations F = ks 3. The attempt at a solution 24 = k*(1/3) why is it 1/3 inches and not 4 inches?
