Question

Value of spring constant depends upon________.


Open in App
Solution

Spring constant:

  1. The spring constant would be the spring's distinguishing feature. It is measured in units of N m-1 and depends on the material for construction.
  2. We understand that the spring force through an ideal spring is proportional to the displacement (x) of its own endpoints from the equilibrium position.

As a result of Hooke's Law,

Fs=-kx

Here,

Fs is the spring force.

x is the displacement from the equilibrium position.

k is the spring constant.

Therefore, the value of the spring constant depends upon the elastic properties of the spring.
