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

When running a moving cart into a relaxed spring, will the force of the spring be constant on the cart?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\Delta[/tex]P[tex]\rightarrow[/tex] =[tex]\rightarrow[/tex]Fnet[tex]\Delta[/tex]t

or F = 1/2kx^2?

3. The attempt at a solution

my guess is that the more you compress or strech a spring, the stronger the opposing force
