A vertical spring with a force constant $$k$$ is fixed on a table. A ball of mass $$m$$ at a height $$h$$ above the free upper end of the spring falls vertically on the spring so that the spring is compressed by a distance $$d$$. The net work done in the process is:
1. $$mg(h+d)+\frac{1}{2}kd^2$$
2. $$mg(h+d)-\frac{1}{2}kd^2$$
3. $$mg(h-d)-\frac{1}{2}kd^2$$
4. $$mg(h-d)+\frac{1}{2}kd^2$$
