Spring 10.32

  1. Jun 2, 2006 #1
    An object is attached to the lower end of a 100-coil spring that is hanging from the ceiling. The spring stretches by 0.160 m. The spring is then cut into 2 identical springs of 50 coils each. Each spring is attached between the ceiling and the object. By how much does each spring stretch?

    Try working out the spring constant first.
