Could somebody please tell me if we can apply young modulus theory to a slinky spring, or can only be applied to a rod when strenched?If possible to apply to the slinky spring, how can we calculate the elasticity of that slinky spring?by the way what is the process by which slinky springs are manufactured?(do they compress a thin metal wire in such a way that it always compresses)
Thanks in advanced

that as the limit E tends to 0 the spring gets damaged?
