An inclined plane of angle θ = 20.0° has a spring of force constant k = 520 N/m fastened securely at the bottom

so that the spring is parallel to the surface as shown in the figure below. A block of mass m = 2.59 kg is placed on the plane at a distance d = 0.324 m from the spring. From this position, the block is projected downward toward the spring with speed v = 0.750 m/s. By what distance is the spring compressed when the block momentarily comes to rest?
