Answer to Question #45906 in Mechanics | Relativity for Gideon
A spring of natural length L extends to a new length L' under tensile force. If Hooke's law applies, the work done in stretching the spring is .........?
A spring has a natural length of L. When it is stretched x meters beyond that, Hooke’s Law states that the spring pulls back with a restoring force F = k * x, where x = (L' - L), and the constant k is called the spring constant, and represents the stiffness of the spring. All the work involved in stretching from L to L', i.e. for the increase in length, we would calculate as W = F * x = k * x^2 / 2 = k * (L' - L)^2 / 2
I’ve used Assignment Expert twice now, and I’m a full fledged fan. This morning I had a crunching 7 hour deadline for a huge programming assignment I forgot was due, and turned to them for help. The estimate was affordable and easy to pay for through PayPal. Shortly after, an expert got to work on the problem at hand. The operator was in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, and everything went quickly and smoothly. After looking through the assignment, I was happy to find that everything ran very smoothly, and no shortcuts were taken/no requirements were omitted. I wish I could say more about this service. It’s truly a game changer and has saved my back more than once now.
