Solution: A spring is compressed from its natural length of 5 cm to 3 cm. What will the maximum length of the spring be if no energy is lost and the force constant is the same for compression as it is for stretching? What is the maximum length of the spring if the force constant for compression is 100 N/m but 50 N/m for stretching?
