Spring Constant Formula

Hooke's law is discovered by the physicist Robert Hooke. The Hooke's law spring constant states that the force required to stretch out any elastic object such as string is directly proportional to the extension of the spring. The below given is the Spring constant formula to calculate spring force constant k. Here k represents the constant of proportionality, also known as string constant, F represents force and x states the distance from equilibrium while X0 is spring equilibrium position.


k = F / (X - X0)


k = Spring Constant
F = Force
X = Distance from Equilibrium
X0 = Spring Equilibrium Position
