Been thinking for a long time and can't come up with a conclusion!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you have a spring with a constant k value and you cut the spring in two(not exactly in half), does the k value change in the springs or stay the same?

I'm thinking that the K value does not change because the length of the new springs doesn't have anything to do with the k value. I have been asked to come up with mathematical answer to this question but can't seem to find one but F = -kx
