Springs: what is the height bounced by a spring, mass *m*, initial length #l_0# compressed length #l_1#, spring constant *k*?

1.00 g of alkali metal carbonate, #M_2CO_3#, is dissolved in water and made up to #250 cm^3# in a volumetric flask. #25.00 cm^3# portions of this solution are titrated against 0.113M hydrochloric acid. The average titre is #12.80cm^3#. What element is M?

A popup toy consists of a mass m stuck to the top of a light spring of natural length #l_0#and spring constant k. The spring is compressed to length #l_1# when the popup is stuck to the ground. To what height above the ground does it reach?
