A block of mass 0.245 kg is placed on top of a light, vertical spring of force constant 4 975 N/m and pushed downward so that the spring is compressed by 0.104 m. After the block is released from rest, it travels upward and then leaves the spring. To what maximum height above the point of release does it rise? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

A block of mass 0.245 kg is placed on top of a light, vertical spring of force constant 4 975 N/m and pushed downward so that the spring is compressed by 0.104 m. After the block is released from rest, it travels upward and then leaves the spring. To what maximum height above the point of release does it rise? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
