(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Assuming you have a bow that behaves like a spring with a spring constant of 168 N/m and you pull it to a draw of 54 cm, to the nearest joule how much work do you perform?

2. Relevant equations

The force of a constant spring is f=-k(x) where x is the displacement and k is the spring constant.

3. The attempt at a solution

So Basically If I find the force and then place it into the simple work equation W=F(x) where x is displacement and F is force. I get 49(rounded). Am I doing this correctly?
