What is the spring constant of a spring that stretches 2.00 cm when a mass of 0.600 kg is suspended from it?

i know the answer is 295 n/m but im nto sure how they got to it,

  • physics -

    Spring Constant =
    Weight(N) divided by stretch (meters)
    = 0.60*9.8/0.02 = 294 N/m

  • phyiscs -

    i feel like slapping myself across the face... i completely forgot about gravity...
