If one used a stiff vertical spring rather than a regular one what would be the results?


The gravitational PE and the Elastic PE would decrease. Am i right?

    3) a) Calculate the unstretched length of a spring, which has a Hooke's constant of 40N/m and is 56cm long when supporting a stationary 800g object. I did mag = kx (0.800)(9.81) = 40x x = 0.20m l-x = u 56-20 = u u = 36cm Is that right?
