Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm working on a lab and part of it requires the calculation of the theoretical spring constant of a spring based on its physical parameters and compare it to the spring constant calculated experimentally. I can calculate k using my experimental data fine, but I can't find anything on calculating it based on physical parameters. Any help would be appreciated.

What do you mean physical parameters?
