    Hi could someone please help me rearrange this equation to get k?

    im looking to find the spring constant from the equation.. T=2pie root M/K

    thanks[/list][/quote][/code]

    You can handle this easily enough.

    Start by squaring both sides of the equation.

    square both sides

    T^2 = 4(pi^2)(m/k)

    multiply both sides by k

    then divide by (T^2)

    therefore

    k = 4(pi^2)/(T^2)
    everything is mathematical.

    oops missed off the m on the equation

    k = 4m(pi^2)/(T^2)
    everything is mathematical.
