Homework Help: physics (Newton's Laws)

Posted by Kathy on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 10:39pm.

One end of a spring is attached firmly to a wall, and a block is attached to the other end. When the spring is fully compressed, it exerts a force F on the block, and when the spring is fully extended, the force it exerts on the block is −F. What is the force of the spring on the block at (a) equilibrium (neither compressed nor stretched), (b) halfway between maximum stretch and equilibrium, and (c) halfway between maximum compression and equilibrium? Carefully consider the signs in your answer, which indicate direction, and express your answers in terms of F.
Please, help.
Thank you.
