A car is hauling an 88 kg trailer, to which it is connected by a spring. The spring constant is 2350 N/m. The car accelerates with an acceleration of 0.29 m/s^2. By how much does the spring stretch?
The Attempt at a Solution
88(.29) = -2350x
x = -0.01085957
This seems right. I tried -.0109 and .-01086 but no luck with that either. Am I using the wrong formula?
