It's not a new question... I answered it too many times so they changed the values. I don't need help with Part A I have already done it as you can see by the check mark.

You had the right method but the wrong hypotenuse. In the diagram, the hypotenuse of this right triangle is the fixed rod (235mm) not the spring.

Thank you so much, I got the right answer. That made a lot more sense that it was the rod and not the spring. Thank you both for not giving up on me! :smile::smile::smile::smile::smile:
