I'm working with springs and I curious as to how I find out the N/m of any given spring.

like if the maximum work load of a spring is 20 pounds how could I figure out the N/m of it (or the 'k', the spring constant, or what information about the spring do I all need to determine the constant in N/m if it is not given by the company?

Also can I establish a ratio? (random example) Like if a a 20 pound spring has 2 N/m would a 100 pound spring have 10 N/m ?

Or if I'm completely going in the wrong direction with this, please help direct me in the right one.

Any input would be most excellent!

Thanks!
