Energy and Work
The physical magnitude which correlates force and displacement is called WORK.
The boxes have the same mass but they are placed at different heights relative to the floor. Boxes 1 and 2 have gravitational potential energy because when they fall they perform a work:L = m*g*h
Where k is the spring costant of the spring (see Hooke law) and x is the elongation of the spring.
