So, here is the funny question for you. You create a baby bouncer using an elastic cord (consider it to be a spring). Use Hooke's law to determine how far the spring would stretch downward once the baby is placed in the seat, if the spring constant k = 500 N/m, and the baby has a mass m = 11 kg. Hint: weight of the baby (gravitational force on it) is the force exerted on the spring. In equilibrium (when baby is at rest) it's magnitude becomes equal to the elastic force exerted by the spring on baby: F_g = F_e.
