Enter the spring rate (N/m) and the displacement (m) into the calculator to determine the Spring Work.

## Spring Work Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Spring Work.

Ws = k * x^2

• Where Ws is the Spring Work (Joules (N-m/s))
• k is the spring rate (N/m)
• x is the displacement (m)

## How to Calculate Spring Work?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Spring Work.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the spring rate (N/m). In this example, the spring rate (N/m) is given as 4.
2. Next, determine the displacement (m). For this problem, the displacement (m) is given as 12.
3. Finally, calculate the Spring Work using the equation above:

Ws = k * x^2

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Ws = 4 * 12^2 = 576 (Joules (N-m/s))

Example Problem #2:

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are:

spring rate (N/m) = 5

displacement (m) = 60

Entering these values yields:

Ws = k * x^2 = 18,000 (Joules (N-m/s))
