A spring is .66 m long when it contains no energy When a stone with mass M= 8.5 kg is placed on the spring it shortens by b= .06 m then supports the stone in equilibrium. The stone is now pushed down an additional d= .38 m. When released, the stone is projected upward to maximum height H meters above release point.

Find H, the maximum upward movement of the stone.
