A mass of 100 g causes a vertical spring to stretch by 2.0 cm. a) find the spring constant of the spring in N/m: No picture was given to me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok im not sure if this is the formula to find spring constant so is it:

k= mg/x

and if so the answer is

k=(100)(9.81)/2.0 cm

k= 490.5 N/m

is this correct?
