A mass is suspended on a spring scale. The scale shows a reading of 5N and stretches a distance of 0.2 meters from its relaxed length.
1)What is the spring constant of the scale?


)If this scale was taken to a planet that has a mass 4 times larger than the earth and a radius 4 times greater than the earth, what would the reading on the scale be when the mass was suspended on it?

2)If this scale was taken to a planet that has a mass 4 times larger than the earth and a radius 4 times greater than the earth, what would the reading on the scale be when the mass was suspended on it?
