Spring Force

by Haley

Spring force is the force created by a compressed or stretched spring. Depending upon how the spring is attached, it can pull or push in order to create a force.

There are springs inside clockwork or windup toys. These springs can be compressed to store energy that will make toys move.

When a spring is stretched or squashed, it creates a force in the opposite direction because the spring tries to get back to its original shape.

For example, when you squash a spring downwards on a table, you will feel a push upwards on your hand. The more you squash the spring, the bigger the push you will feel.
