Answer;

Spring constant

Explanation;

The measure of a spring’s resistance to being compressed or stretched is the spring constant.

  • The symbol of spring constant is K, since it is a constant. From the Hooke's law,for a helical spring or any elastic material, the extension force is directly proportional to the extension provided the elastic limit is not exceeded.
  • Therefore; the spring constant = Force/extension. That is; K = F/e; where k is the spring constant, F is the extension force and e is the extension.
  • Spring constant depicts the resistance of the spring to compressional and stretching forces.
