    slope of line = F/∆x = k

    slope of line A = (200-0)/(0.05-0) = 4000 ← spring constant of spring A

    slope of line B = (100-0)/(0.075-0) = 1333 ← spring constant of spring B

    slope of line C = (100-0)/(0.175-0) = 571 ← spring constant of spring C

    ( By the way, there is an error in the last gradation of x-axis in the given graph. It should be 0.20, instead of 0.25)

      Nice job, Ash. Maybe put units on your results.
