A spring with a force constant of 64 N/m is pulled by a force of 4.8 N. By how many centimeters does the length of the spring increase?
A spring with a constant of 700 N/m is stretched when a force of 35 N is applied to it, and its length when stretched is 0.48 m. What is the spring’s length when it is not extended?
A spring that is 0.36 m long is pulled by a force of 18 N. The spring’s length increases by 0.012 m. What is the constant of the spring?
