Hooke’s Law Force=-KΔx K is the spring constant, measured in  newtons/meter - means that the spring is pulling in the  opposite direction of the stretch Δx is the amount of stretch in meters

An archer draws  back a bow .5  meters. The  bow has a force  constant of  5000 N/m.   What force does  it take to pull the  bow that far?
Hooke’s Law Example A spring is stretched 0.3 m by hanging a 400 g  mass on it.  What is the spring constant (K)  of the spring?

Unformatted text preview: force of 8 N. How far has it been stretched? Lab: Hookes Law Problem: Measure the spring constant of a given spring. Background information Hypothesis: make a guess, K=force of the spring stretched 1 meter Procedure: diagram and explanation Data: make a table Analysis: graph, calculations Conclusion: Conclusion How much force will a spring with a spring constant of K=225 N/m, pull back if it is stretched 40 cm? Out: How could you use your knowledge of Hookes law to make your car win the race? Remember your synthesis! Picture: What you own, what you dont understand...
