7.54: To be at equilibrium at the bottom, with the spring compressed a distance , x 0 the spring force must balance the component of the weight down the ramp plus the largest value of the static friction, or . sin 0 f θ w kx + = The work-energy theorem requires that the energy stored in the spring is equal to the sum of the work done by friction, the work
