11.59. Model: A “sprong” that obeys the force law 3 e () , x Fq x x =− where q is the sprong constant and e x is the equilibrium position. Visualize: We place the origin of the coordinate system on the free end of the sprong, that is, ef 0 m. xx == Solve: (a) The units of q are 3 N/m . (b) A cubic curve rises more steeply than a parabola. The force increases by a factor of 8 every time
