Spring Question

  1. Aug 4, 2009 #1
    If a Spring is encountering a Tension within it. And you know the distance it is currently at and the Spring Constant, is there a way to find out what the resting distance of the spring is? Also noting that the block attached to the spring can only move in the y direction.

    Yes, if you know the force and the spring constant, then the basic spring equation will give you the extension …

    have a go! :smile:
