A 50 g mass hanger hangs moitionless from a partially stretched spring. When a 80 gram mass is added to the hanger, the spring stretch increases by 8 cm. What is the spring constant of the spring (in N/m)? (Assume g = 9.79 m/s2.)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 21, 2019, 12:37 pm ad1c9bdddf
This brief explanations shows how to calculate the spring constant of the spring.
