By the law of energy conservation:
=>PE(A) = PE(spring) + Uf
=>mgh = 1/2kx^2 + Uf
=>Uf = mgh - 1/2kx^2
=>Uf = 4 x 9.8 x 0.6 - 1/2 x 20 x 10^3 x (40 x 10^-3)^2
=>Uf = 7.52 J

E in spring = 1/2 k x^2 = 10 * 0.04^2
E from potential = m gh = 4 * 9.8 * 0.6
As energy is conserved U1 + 1/2 k x^2 = mgh substitute to find the work lost.
