    Answer:

    66.5N

    Explanation:

    F = kx

    Where F = force

    K = spring constant

    x = compression

    Given

    K = 950N/m

    x = 7.0cm

    F = ?

    First convert the compression to meters .

    7.0cm = 7.0 x 0.01

    = 0.07 meters

    Therefore

    F = 950 x 0.07

    = 66.5N
