Graph a given record of force vs end location, for a certain spring, find its force constant. Develop F(x) and PE(x).
On a frictionless table, one end of a spring is fixed. A cord attached to the free end pulls it along a meter scale beginning from 0. A record is made of the position of the free end, x, and the resisting force, F, exerted by the spring on the cord. SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for the parameters and a record of F vs x, showing position
