1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A spring of modulus 80 N and natural length 60 cm compressed to a length of 35 cm. find the thrust produced. 2. Relevant equations Is thrust the opposite of tension? Do we use T=λ/initial length x (final lengthinitial length) ? Or do we just solve it without adding a negative sign? 3. The attempt at a solution T=(80/0.6)x(0.350.60)
