 determine the spring constant (in N/m) and the weight of the block The drawing shows three identical springs hanging from the ceiling. Nothing is attached to the first spring, whereas a W = 5.07-N block hangs from the second spring. A block of unknown weight hangs from the third spring. From the drawing, determine the spring constant (in N/m) and the weight of the block hanging from the third spring.
