How does a stiffer spring affect the spring constant?

Question:

How does a stiffer spring affect the spring constant?

Spring Constant:

The spring constant is the constant that measures how strong a spring is, the unit of measurement is N/m, or Newtons per meter, meaning how much force is needed to extend or contract the spring by 1 meter.

Answer and Explanation: 1

A stiff sping would be harder to press down, in another world the force needed to move the spring would be high. Since the force need N is higher, the spring constant would also be higher.
