Any help? I'm not so familiar with the pounds and feet...would be easier for me to have N and cm
A force of 7 pounds is required to hold a spring stretched 0.2 feet beyond its natural length. How much work is done in stretching the spring from its natural length to 1 feet beyond its natural length? Don't forget to enter the correct units. (You may enter lbf or lb*ft for ftlb.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[W=\int\limits_{x _{i}}^{x _{f}} Kx dx\] \[W=K[\frac{ x ^{2} }{ 2 }]_{x _{i}}^{x _{f}}\] \[W=\frac{ K }{ 2 }[x ^{2}x _{f}^{2}]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1F=kx pound F= K x (in ft) then k=lb/ft = pound per foot now work w= (k/2)x^2 W= (lb / ft)(ft)^2=lb ft
