Question:

A vertical scale on a spring balance reads from 0 to 200 N.The scale has a length of 10.0 cm from the 0 to 200 N reading. A fish hanging from the bottom of the spring oscillates vertically at a frequency of 2.05 Hz. Ignoring the mass of the spring, what is the mass m of the fish?

Spring Constant:

If we have a spring, and we want to stretch it, then we need to pull its one end by fixing its another end. Here, the total force which we have applied to stretch the spring by one-unit length is defined by the term spring constant. Usually, the Newton per meter unit shows it.
