To calculate the work required to extend the spring, you can use the formula for the work done on a spring:

[ W = \frac{1}{2} kx^2 ]

Where:

- ( W ) is the work done,
- ( k ) is the spring constant, and
- ( x ) is the displacement from the equilibrium position.

Given ( k = 2 , \text{(kg/s}^2)), and ( x = 0.62 , \text{m} ) (converted from 62 cm to meters), we can plug these values into the formula:

[ W = \frac{1}{2} \times 2 \times (0.62)^2 ]

[ W = \frac{1}{2} \times 2 \times 0.3844 ]

[ W = 0.3844 , \text{J} ]

So, it will take approximately 0.3844 joules of work to extend the spring by 62 cm.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
