what i did so far:

F(x)=kx

10=k4

k=5/2

by hooke's law i need to find the integral of 5/2x right. but what are the bounds.

All you have to do is use the formula

Work = potential energy increase = (1/2) k x^2, where k is the spring constant that you computed (which is 2.5 lb/inch) and x = 6 inches.

The answer wil be in inch-lb. If you want it in foor-lb, you will have to divide by 12.

You could also do it by integration

Work - Integral of F dx = Integral of kx dx from x=0 to x=6. The answer is the same.

- work force -
