Okay, So the first things who calculates Spring Constant K here recalled the hooks law. That app equals to chaos. Okay, Okay. And this is the X equals two 42 minus 30. He was 12 or zero on one's half meter. That centimeter fell Seven articles to 011 will be there. And we know that the work this, what has done is to to Jules, that equals to zero to Europe on one to text e x every self okay. By this equation, gonna have K equals two approximately equals to 280 278. It's over, Kay. And four, the part B Barbie is through Catholic. It's the work that zone by the same spring, but from different position from, uh, 0 to 011 meter. And, uh, that equals two 1.416 seven draw. Approximately
