Report on Finding the Spring Constant
Lab: Finding the Spring Constant (k)
What is Hooke's Law, and what does it have to do with k?
Objectives: Determine the spring constant of a spring, Calculate the elastic potential energy, Calculate gravitational potential energy, Determine whether mechanical energy is conserved in an oscillating spring.

In order to estimate the spring constant (k), one must first understand that a higher value of the spring constant (k) represents a stronger spring, and a lower value represents a weaker spring. That is true because F and x in Hooke's Law (F=kx) have a direct relationship. So, I can state that k will be a numerical value and have the label of N/m. My guess for the spring constant (k) of the spring that we used is 10 N/m , because it seems to be a fairly strong spring, yet has some give.
