Enter the force on the body (N) and the displacement (m) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Stiffness Coefficient. 

Stiffness Coefficient Formula

s = F / d


  • s is the Stiffness Coefficient (N/m)
  • F is the force on the body (N)
  • d is the displacement (m)

To calculate Stiffness Coefficient, divide the force on the body by the displacement.

How to Calculate Stiffness Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Stiffness Coefficient.

  1. First, determine the force on the body (N). 
  2. Next, determine the displacement (m). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = s = F / d.
  4. Finally, calculate the Stiffness Coefficient.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

force on the body (N) = 478

displacement (m) = 902
