Question:

What is the spring constant of a spring that is compressed by 0.250 cm when a force of 35 N is applied?

a) 140 N/cm

b) 100 N/cm

c) 200 N/cm

d) 150 N/cm

Hooke's Law:

Hooke's law supports the linearity between the applied force to a string and the change in its length. The linearity means that the force is directly proportional to the change in length, wherein the proportionality constant corresponds to the spring constant.
