Nerf Crossbow Spring Constant
Posted 01 June 2009 - 10:41 AM
I'm doing a physics project focused around the crossbow, and I need to know the spring constant of the spring. Does anyone know off of the top of their head? If no one knows I can test it, but I thought that i'd ask first. If no one knows I will post it after I test it in class tomorow. Thanks.

Also what project are you doing? I'm just curious.
EDIT: Also test the spring constant any way even if you get an answer...it'll show that you know how to calculate forces and constants with out help, plus you'd probably get a better answer than on here.

Really...I don't think any one on here would know that. I don't even know that and I'm taking Physics as well. I'd imagine it would have to be less than 0.25 Joules but thats just a shot in the dark.
Joules is not the unit for the spring constant.
Newtons / meteror
[unit of force] / [unit of length]

Contact Zorn or Doom. I'm sure they could answer this question if they've ever dealt with a crossbow spring before.
He could also try captain slug.
