Calculate Spring Equilibrium Position - Hooke's Law Calculators


Hooke's law is a principle of physics that states that the force needed to extend or compress a spring by some distance is proportional to that distance. That is: where is a constant factor characteristic of the spring, its stiffness. The law is named after 17th century British physicist Robert Hooke.

Design Equations: X0 = (F / K) + X
F = Force
K = Spring Constant
X = Distance from Equilibrium
X0 = Spring Equilibrium Position
