# Math Help - Work done in a spring from x=3 to x=26

1. ## Work done in a spring from x=3 to x=26

 This question is concerned with calculating the work required to stretch a spring. A certain 'engineering' spring does not obey Hooke's law. Instead, the tension in the spring when it is extended a distance beyond its natural length is given by Find the work done in stretching the spring from x = 3 to x = 26

What are the steps to solving this?

2. ## Re: Work done in a spring from x=3 to x=26

By definition, work is $\int_3^{26}T(x)\,dx$.
