Homework Help: Weight attached to a spring general question?

  1. Feb 15, 2012 #1
    I was wondering, in my class we have been dealing with a lot of equations related to some weight attached to a spring which is attached to a fixed point and has some force being applied to it or something like that. Where exactly is such a thing encountered in real life?
