a mass of 40 grams cause a spring to stretch to the length of 40 cm, A mass of 60 grams causes it to stretch to a lenght of 6.7 cm. Write an equation that models this length of a spring, l, based on the weight of the mass, g. What does the y intercept mean in this case? What does te slope mean in this case?

    Answer

    Part 1: l = - 1.665g

    Part 2: Max-mum the spring can support.

    Part 3: The spring constant.

    Explanation

    Gradient is also called the slope.

    Slope = (change in y) / (change in x)

    = (60 - 40) / (6.7 - 40)

    = 20 / - 33.3

    = - 0.600600601

    Since the graph is a straight line, the equation would be,

    m ∝ l

    m = kl Where K is the constant.

    g = - 0.60l

    l = - 1.665g

    Part 2

    The Y-intercept represent the mix-mum weight the spring can support.

    part 3

    The slope in this case represent the spring constant.
