A mass of 5kg is hanging at a height of 0.8 m. The string that it is hanging from is cut, and it falls onto a vertical spring. The mass connects to the spring and it bounces up and down a number of times before coming to rest at a height of 0.2 m. Explain which forms of energy are non-zero at each stage, and which forms it converts between during this process. Explain the physical phenomenon that this is based on. Assuming that no energy is lost and the temperature of the mass does not change. How much potential energy is the spring storing once the mass comes to rest?
