This interactive homework problem for introductory physics presents a block attached to a spring on a frictionless incline plane. Values are given for the spring constant, mass of the block, and spring length. If a support rod is removed, the block will slide down the incline. The learner's task is to determine how much the spring will stretch. This problem is part of a much larger collection of interactive examples by the same author.
