A $150\space g$ ball is dropped from rest, falling a total distance of $5.0\space m$ and compressing a spring in the process. If the spring has a spring constant of $k = 50\space N/m$, what is the compression of the spring? (Ignore air resistance)

A

$0.27\space m$

B

$0.29\space m$

C

$0.54\space m$

D

$17\space m$
