Question

The force required to stretch a spring varies with the distance as shown in the figure. If the experiment is performed with above spring of half length, the line O A will

  1. Shift towards F-axis    
  2. Shift towards X-axis    
  3. Remain as it is    
  4. Become double in length    

The correct answer is: Shift towards F-axis


    When the length of spring is halved, its spring constant will becomes double
    open square brackets B e c a u s e blank k proportional to fraction numerator 1 over denominator x end fraction proportional to fraction numerator 1 over denominator L end fraction therefore k proportional to fraction numerator 1 over denominator L end fraction close square brackets
    Slope of force displacement graph gives the spring constant left parenthesis k right parenthesis of spring
    If k becomes double then slope of the graph increases i. e. graph shifts towards force- axis
