Textbook Problem

While discussing types of coil springs: Technician A says that linear-rate coil springs have equal spacing between the coils. Technician B says that a variable-rate spring may have a cylindrical shape with unequally spaced coils. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The correct technician among the two i.e. A and B who are discussing on the coil springs.

Explanation

Coil springs: It is also known as a helical spring, which is a mechanical device which is typically used to store energy and subsequently release it, to absorb shock, or to maintain a force between contacting surfaces.

Two basic designs of coil springs used are linear rate and variable rate. It gives the spring three functional ranges of coils inactive, transitional, and active.

Inactive coils are usually the end coils and introduce force into the spring. Transitional coils become inactive as they are compressed to their point of maximum load-bearing capacity. Active coils work throughout the whole range of spring loading...
