#### Concept explainers

The spring force *F* and displacement *x* for a close-wound tension spring arc measured as shown in Fig. P1.3.

The spring force *F* and displacement *x* satisfy the linear equation
*k* is the spring constant and F, is the preload induced during manufacturing of the spring.

(a) Using the given data, find the equation of the line for the spring force *F* as a function of the displacement x, and determine the values of the spring constant *k* and preload *F _{i}*.

(b) Sketch the graph of *F* as a function of *x* and dearly indicate both the spring constant *k* and preload* F _{i}.*
