Problem 7Q

You have two springs that are identical except that spring 1 is stiffer than spring 2(k1 > K2). On which spring is more work done: (a) if they are stretched using the same force; (b) if they are stretched the same distance?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 2

Hooke's law states that the restoring force (F) acting on a spring is equal to the product of the stillness constant (k) and the compression extension distance of the spring (x):

The expression for work done on the spring is given by the equation:

We can rewrite this expression in terms of restoring force:
