Flashcards in Module 3 - P6 - Materials Deck (4)
What is the formula for spring constant?
K = F/x
What happens beyond the elastic limit of the spring?
The spring will be permanently changed and will behave like a plastic
What happens when two springs are in parallel?
The spring constants add together and the springs are harder to stretch. If they are the same spring and same force the extension is halved and spring constant is doubled.
