Abstract- This investigation will try to find the spring constant for a spring with only a cart, track, ruler, string, masses, iron stand, and table. By using the string the tension on the cart can be used to find the spring constant by changing the mass of the masses. Hooke’s law will allow for the calculation of the spring constant. Introduction- If a weight, W = mg , is hung from one end of an ordinary spring, causing it to stretch a distance x , then an equal and opposite force, F, is created in the spring which acts to oppose the pull of the weight. If W is not so large as to permanently distort the spring, then this force, F, will restore the spring to its original length after the load is removed. F is thus called an elastic force and it is well known that the
