A spring with a spring constant of 22N/m is initally compressed by 2.3cm. How much work is required to compress the spring an additional 1.7 cm?
I can't find information in my book about compression; only work and exertion. Please help and provide all steps for work. Thank you! Jackie
x/0.017 = 22/1
X = 0.374 N.
Work=F*d = 0.374 * 0.017=0.0064 Joules.
