In outer space a rock of mass 4 kg is attached to a long spring and swung at constant speed in a circle of radius 6 m. The spring exerts a force of constant magnitude 720 N. What is the speed of the rock?

i found the speed it is 32.8 m/s

part 2:

The relaxed length of the spring is 5.7 m. What is the stiffness of this spring?

thats what i have no idea about could someone help lead me in the direction of solving it or show me how? please and thanks!

2. Relevant equations

i used F=mv^2/r to get speed
