The Jack in the Box
Jack weighs m
Box weighs M

So if you depress the head of the Jack and release it suddenly, it will pop up because of the spring between the Jack and the bottom of the box. How much force is required to depress the Jack so that both the Jack and the Box will jump up into the air? The mass of the Jack is m and the mass of the Box is M and the weight of the spring is negligible.
The spring is regular linear spring....

The PRIZE is MANTUS CHAIN HOOK that fits your chain size....
