## What is force constant?

In physics, a force constant is another term for **a spring constant, as defined by Hooke’s law. It is a proportionality constant, more precisely. The strength constant k is related to a system’s rigidity (or stiffness), the greater the constant of force, the greater the restored force, and the stiffer the system.**

## What is CGS unit of force constant k?

unit of force in CGS is **dyne (d).**

## What is the unit of spring force constant?

The rate or spring constant, k, relates the force to the extension in SI units: **N/m or kg/s2.**

## What are the SI units of K?

**The kelvin, symbol K, is the SI unit of thermodynamic temperature. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Boltzmann constant k to be 1.380 649 x 10**-23 when expressed in the unit J K-1, which is equal to kg m2 s-2 K-1, where the kilogram, meter and second are defined in terms of h, c and u0394u03bdCs.

## What is the meaning of force constant?

In physics, a force constant is **another term for a spring constant, as defined by Hooke’s law. It is a proportionality constant, more precisely. The strength constant k is related to a system’s rigidity (or stiffness), the greater the constant of force, the greater the restored force, and the stiffer the system.**

## What is the force constant equal to?

Ans: Spring Constant is a measure of a spring’s stiffness which is denoted by a proportional constant k. When a spring is stretched or compressed such that its length is altered by a value x from its equilibrium length, then it exerts a force. The force is equal to **-kx in a direction towards its equilibrium position.**

## What is force constant of spring constant?

**k is known as the spring constant. The spring constant units are given as Newton per meter.**Spring Constant Definition.FormulaF -kxSpring Constant UnitsNm-1

## What is force constant in physical chemistry?

[u2032fu022frs u201akxe4nxb7stu0259nt] (mechanics) **The ratio of the force to the deformation of a system whose deformation is proportional to the applied force. (physical chemistry)**

## What are CGS unit of force?

The C.G.S. unit of force is **dyne. One dyne is the force which acts on a body of mass 1 gramme and produces an acceleration of 1 cms**-2, i.e. 1 dyne 1 g xd7 1 cms-2.
