Hi Im trying to find the elastic potential energy stored in a mousetrap spring. I plan on doing this by graphing the spring's constant then integrating the function. I just wanted to know what i should be measuring with the x-axis. In normal springs the force is on the y-axis and the compression of the spring (cm) is on the x-axis. I know it's either going to be degrees or radians (from 0 to 180) im just not sure which one.
