# Classic problem

A block of mass $$m$$ is dropped from a height $$h$$ on a spring, of constant $$k$$, as shown in the figure. Find the maximum velocity attained by block

Details and Assumption

• Assume spring is long enough.

• Spring is fixed on ground at one end.

• $$h=\SI{5}{\meter}, m=\SI{6}{\kilo\gram}, g=\SI{10}{\meter\per\second\squared}, k=\SI{2}{\newton\per\meter}$$
