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

A spring of modulus 80 N and natural length 60 cm compressed to a length of 35 cm. find the thrust produced.

2. Relevant equations

Is thrust the opposite of tension? Do we use T=-λ/initial length x (final length-initial length) ? Or do we just solve it without adding a negative sign?

3. The attempt at a solution

T=(80/0.6)x(0.35-0.60)
