## Fundamentals of Physics Extended (10th Edition)

$0.1m$
As we know that $P.E=\frac{1}{2}kx^2$ but $P.E=mgh$ $mgh=\frac{1}{2}kx^2$ here in our case $h=0.4+x$ Thus putting the values, we get $2(9.8)(0.4+x)=\frac{1}{2}(1960)x^2$ $7.84+19.6x=980x^2$ $980x^2-19.6x-7.84=0$ after solving it, we get $x=0.1$m
