External force or you can say deformation force causes spring to stretch and restoring force is developed due to introduction of restoring strain in spring to restore in its original shape.

Springs are great for absorbing energy. The spring force is negative when the spring is stretched and positive when it is compressed or pushed.

That would be a spring, which is stretched when you apply force to it. The spring used have a specific force constant, which means that an extension of the spring to a certain length is equal to a fixed amount of force.

It may loose its elastic nature.

Elastic force is a force which you are acting on it while elastic potential energy is produced when the spring is being compressed or stretched

When some materials are squashed,stretched,twisted or bent they exert force which acts in the opposite direction to the force acting on them.

It will also halve.

Just divide the force by the amount of stretch.

Hi, I may be wrong and correct me if i am. Work is the force applied over a distance: F x d. So to calculate the work of a spiral spring it would be the spring coefficient (usually denoted as "k") times the distance. But you have to remember that the spring force is kxd, so you have to integrate the force over the distance, which will yield the following equation: work is equal to 1/2 the spring constant times the distance squared. W=(1/2) k d2

Because the tension applied to the spring is distributed evenly along its whole length.
