A pop-up toy consists of a head and sucker of combined mass mm stuck to the top of a light spring of natural length L0 (zero) and spring constant k. The spring is compressed to length L1 (one) when the pop-up is stuck to the ground.
To what height above the ground does the bottom of the unstretched spring jump to when it is smoothly released?
