Homework Help: Find the energy stored in a spring at .05m and .10m

  1. Jan 19, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the energy stored in a spring when stretched .05m, and .10m. Spring Constant of 67.21 N/m.

    (I am given a graph)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Ok, to find the energy stored I believe I am going to need the distance (.05m, and .10m) and the spring constant. Is there a way to calculate energy stored with just this? I am given a graph but the Force vs. Distance (in meters) only goes up to 0.3m so I can't rely on the graph just by looking at it.
