Homework Help: How would using a stiffer spring affect the value for the spring constant?

  1. Nov 18, 2009 #1
    The spring constant is a measure of the stiffness of the spring. By using a stiffer spring, it results in having a larger k (spring constant) values.
    How would this change affect the values for the elastic and gravitational potential energies?
