Use the law of conservation of energy. Potential energy of the object with mass m at the height h is equal to \[\ E=mgh\] and the potential energy of a spring is equal to \[\ E_{spring}=\frac{1}{2}kx^2\] where k - spring constant, x - displacement Since all the gravitational potential energy will be transformed to the spring potential energy, its quite easy to figure out the displacement from this two equations :D.

Wow thats it! Awesome! This gives x=8cm. Thats the maximum deflection right? Thanks a lot!
