Question details

A 95.0-kg climber is scaling the vertical wall of a mountain. His safety rope is made of a material that, when stretched, behaves like a spring with a spring constant of 1.25 x 10^3 N/m. He accidentally slips and falls freely for 0.841 m before the rope runs out of slack. How much is the rope stretched when it breaks his fall and momentarily brings him to rest?
