Up to a point, the elongation of a spring is directly proportional to the force applied to it. Once you extend the spring more than 10.0 centimeters, however, it no longer follows that simple linear r**The elongation of a spring is directly proportional to the force applied, within a limited regime. The amount of force that is required to extend a spring by 10 centimeters depends upon a characteristic of the spring - the spring constant. Therefore, it is not possible to answer this question without knowing the spring constant of the spring in question.**...
