Today I managed to scavenge a spring from my robotics team. I was wondering if anyone could help me find the strength of it and if so, maybe some ideas of what I could do with this type of spring. And if anyone knows how I could find the spring constant that would be helpful as well. Pictures and specs below.
Length: ~5 inches
Full Compressed length: ~2 inches (couldn't get an accurate length because the spring kept popping out of the vice when I tightened it.)
Compressed length with an 8lb weight on it: ~4.8 inches
OD: ~1.1 inches
ID: ~.85 inches
# of coils: 13 total, ~3 per inch
Thickness of spring material: ~.11 inches
Comparison to [k26]
