Hooke's Law asserts that the force required to either stretch or compress a spring from its natural length varies as the displacement. A certain spring is stretched 12 inches beyond its natural length by a 3 lb. weight. Express the force in terms of the displacement for this spring.

Oh really? Is that all was meant? Perhaps I was thinking along too complex lines.

Thanks, I appreciate it.
