Compressed Spring To Launch Mass#

A spring is compressed a distance $$\Delta$$$$s$$ and is used to launch a mass $$m$$ vertically to a height $$h$$ above it’s starting position.

Part 1#

If the initial compression is tripled, how high above it’s starting position would the mass rise?

• 9$$h$$

• 1/16$$h$$

• 1/4$$h$$

• 16$$h$$

• 4$$h$$
