1)If I am to plot a graph of Force in Newtons vs. Stretch in meters, would the x axis be force or the stretch?

2) The data table has 3 columns: force in Newtons, position in m and displacement in m. Which one is used to plot the Stretch in meters? the position column or the displacement column? I think displacement?

This is a spring lab to measure the work done to stretch a spring.

  • physics -

    1) Stretch

    2) Displacement
