(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The equilibrium length of a certain spring with a force constant of K = 260N/m is 0.25m

What is the magnitude of the force that is required to hold this spring at twice its equilibrium length?

2. Relevant equations

Hookes Law F=Kx

3. The attempt at a solution

260 N/m = F/.25

twice the length is .50m so 260 N/m * .50 = 130
