k is a constant called the rate or spring constant (in SI units: N/m or kg/s2).

So I take it its C =0?

Hmm... But M and Kg are weight units so it might be A :o I guess ill go with A seems more legit and well stated.

Okay. Sweetie. The answer is D. The spring constant is an certain number (that's different for each spring) with specific units (Newtons per meter) that describe how hard the spring is to compress.
