We refer to its starting point as A , the point where it first comes into contact with the spring as B , and the point where the spring is compressed | x | = 0.055 m as C . Point C is our reference point for computing gravitational potential energy. Elastic potential energy (of the spring) is zero when the spring is relaxed. Information given in the second
