An orange spring has a spring constant of 14,000 g/s^2. How much should it stretch if a 200-g mass is attached from it?
I took the equation hanging mass * gravity=spring constant * elongation and turned it around for solving elongation
elongation = 200 * 980/14,000 = 14cm and I'm checking to see if this is the right answer.
