Compression springs

  • #1
Is there a formula to calculate how much force is released from compression springs knowing the exact specifications of the spring of course?

Like if it takes 100g to compress a spring completely, how high would 50g travel when the spring is released.

Force= spring constant*extension

That is normally how you would do it.
