A spring {eq}23.1 \ cm {/eq} long is stretched to {eq}25 \ cm {/eq} by a load of {eq}48 \ N {/eq}. What will be its length when stretched by {eq}85 \ N {/eq} assuming that the elastic limit is not reached?


Spring is defined as a device that is used to absorb energy. It is a coiled wire which is used to store energy in the form of compression, or tension. It is broadly used, such as in watch, toys, guns and many more. Its load-bearing capacity depends on the stiffness.

Given data:

  • The length of the spring is {eq}{L_i} = 23.1\;{\rm{cm}} {/eq}
  • The stretched length of the spring is {eq}{L_f} = 25\;{\rm{cm}} {/eq}
  • The...
