the total kinetic energy is conver ted to the compressed energy of the rubber....so

(mv^2)/2 = (kx^2)/2

here m is mass of the ball, v is the initial velocity, k is the spring constant and x is the value of compression=0.62 cm

so put the values and get the answer

if u like my answer ...rate it the best...thank u
