    Answer:

    320 N/m

    Explanation:

    From Hooke’s law, we deduce that

    F=kx where F is applied force, k is spring constant and x is extension or compression of spring

    Making k the subject of formula then

    k=\frac {F}{x}

    Conversion

    1m equals to 100cm

    Xm equals 25 cm

    25/100=0.25 m

    Substituting 80 N for F and 0.25m for x then

    k=\frac {80}{0.25}=320N/m

    Therefore, the spring constant is equal to 320 N/m
