Unformatted text preview: Explanation: the relationship between the force and stretch is linear, if you apply a larger force, you get a larger stretch. Force is equal to the spring constant times the stretch plus the load force. The slope is equal to the spring constant which is equal to the stiffness of the spring. How hard is it to stretch? The y intercept is the minimum force required to start stretching the spring. Our y intercept went through the origin which is abnormal but it happened because our slope was 98 N / m which was high it was supposed to be around 75 or 80. Sean Daehn...
