## Question:

The force required to stretch a Hooke's-law spring varies from 0 N to 51.6 N as we stretch the spring by moving one end 5.88cm from its unstressed position. Find the force constant of the spring. Answer in units of N/m.

## Hooke's Law:

According to this law, the force has a direct relationship with the displacement of the spring which means, when the applied force increases then the linear strain in the spring also increases proportionally.
