Energy of a Mass on a Spring

In this movie, you will see a mass hanging from a spring. The mass begins with only gravitational potential energy (GPE) since it is not moving and the spring is unstretched. As the mass falls, GPE is turned into kinetic energy (KE) which is present because the mass is now moving. The falling mass also does work on stretching the spring, so GPE also is turned into elastic potential energy (EPE). During the fall...
