Solution: A basket of negligible weight hangs from a vertical spring scale of force constant 1500 N/m .If you suddenly put a 3.00 kg adobe brick in the basket, find the maximum distance that the spring will stretch.If, instead, you release the brick from 1.00 m above the basket, by how much will the spring stretch at its maximum elongation?

Problem

A basket of negligible weight hangs from a vertical spring scale of force constant 1500 N/m .

If you suddenly put a 3.00 kg adobe brick in the basket, find the maximum distance that the spring will stretch.

If, instead, you release the brick from 1.00 m above the basket, by how much will the spring stretch at its maximum elongation?
