1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When a spring (with spring constant k)and length L is cut into 2 identical parts,determine the new spring constant of the springs 2. Relevant equations F=-kx 3. The attempt at a solution I only know the spring constant is a measure of the stiffness of a spring and (I think?)the spring constant is a constant for a particular spring,but I don't know how cutting a spring into half could vary the spring constant? Does k depend on the length of the spring?
