F = kx
89.0 N = k * 0.0191 m
k = 89.0 / 0.0191 = 4660 N/m
Force to compress the spring by 0.0508 m = kx = 4660 N/m * 0.0508 N/M = 236.7 N

First, find the spring constant: F = k × x (88.3 N) = k × (0.0183 m) k = 4825 N/m Now find the force needed: F = k × x F = (4825 N/m) × (0.0471 m) F = 227 N

= (89/.0191)*.0508= 236.712 N
