Here is the question:
I have posted a link there to this topic so the OP can see my work.Calculus 2 Hooke's Law Help?
A bathroom scale is compressed 1/14 in when a 150-lb person stands on it. Assuming that the scale behaves like a spring that obeys Hooke's Law, answer the following:
a.) What is the scale's force constant?
b.) How much does someone who compresses the scale 1/8 in weigh?
c.) How much work is done compressing the scale 1/8 in?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
