A load of 54 N attached to a spring hanging vertically stretches the spring 4.9 cm. The spring is now placed horizontally on a table and stretched 14 cm.
What force is required to stretch it by this amount?

• Physics -

The spring constant is 54/4.9 N/cm.

Multiply that spring constant by the new deflection to get the force required.

!t should be (54/4.9)*14 cm
