    A spring fixed at one end is compressed from its relaxed position by a distance of 0.20 m. See the graph of the applied external force, Fx, versus the position, x, of the spring. (graph is attached)

    (a) Find the work done by the external force in compressing the spring 0.11 m starting from its relaxed position. (answer in Joules)

    (b) Find the work done by the external force to compress the spring from 0.10 m to 0.15 m.(answer in Joules)
