Surprisingly, the spring obeys hooke's law quite well! I must've done a miscalculation in the last post, because one of the data points was quite off from the line of best fit.

I calculated the new k value, for the same spring, to be around 175 N/m. But how did you calculate x0? I tried to calculate x0 by dividing the x-intercept of the line by the k value, from which I got approximately 0.91 cm.
