Unformatted text preview: The value of the spring coefficient is the slope of the linear graph which was calculated to be 887.59 lb/in. This value is greater than the theoretical spring value that we calculated. This discrepancy could be because of the unknown friction that may occurred during the experiment or the shear modulus used in the theoretical spring constant calculation was different from that of the material used during the experiment....
