Question

The natural length of a spring with a force constant of 100 N/m is 50 cm. If a 100 g mass were suspended vertically from the spring, what would the equilibrium length of the spring be? If the springer were stretched 10 cm past its equilibrium length, what would the minimum length of the spring be during oscillations?
