# As a 75.0-kg man steps onto a bathroom scale, the spring inside the scale compresses by 0.650 mm. Excited to see that he has lost 2.50 kg since his previous weigh-in, the man jumps 0.300 m straight up into the air and lands directly on the scale. (a) What is the spring’s maximum compression? (b) If the scale reads in kilograms, what reading does it give when the spring is at its maximum compression?
