A spring is stretched and the work recorded as shown in the table below.

 Work (joules) Stretch (m) 0.11 0.1 0.44 0.2 0.99 0.3 1.76 0.4 2.75 0.5 3.96 0.6 5.39 0.7

Graph this data to find the spring constant, k, of the spring. Give your answer in N/m.

Hint #1: What is the formula work and spring displacement?

Hint #2: You can cut and paste the table into a spreadsheet to save time!

• This data is NOT linear. You'll need to add a column and modify the data to graph a straight line or graph the actual data and pick the correct type of trend line.

Make sure:

• Your trend line includes an equation (set the intercept to 0)
• Your axes and equation are labeled correctly
• On your spreadsheet OR on a separate piece of paper, show HOW you came to your answer with the values from the graph.
