    A) What is a restoring force?

    The restoring force of a spring is the force exerted by the spring in a direction opposite to that of the displacement of the spring and tries to pull the spring back to the equilibrium position. This restoring force is proportional to the negative displacement from the equilibrium position of the spring.

    F = -kx, ...
