Whether or not the spring is vertical or not, assuming that the spring is ideal, is F_{net}always equal to -kx?

Is it incorrect to write the sum of the forces of a vertical spring as F_{net}= -kx - mg?

And does hooke's law account for the force of friction on a horizontal spring? If not would the sum of the forces look like this? F_{net}= -kx - [itex]\mu[/itex]N

2. Relevant equations

F = -kx
