This tool helps you easily convert height measurements between different units.

## How to Use the Height Compression Calculator

This calculator helps you determine the final height of an object after a force is applied to compress it. Please follow the steps below to use the calculator:

- Enter the initial height of the object in centimeters (cm).
- Enter the force applied to the object in newtons (N).
- Enter the spring constant of the object in newtons per centimeter (N/cm).
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the final height of the object in the result field.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the formula for spring compression, which is derived from Hooke’s Law:

`compression = force / spring constant`

The final height is then calculated as:

`final height = initial height - compression`

This formula assumes that the spring constant is positive and the force applied is sufficient to cause a measurable compression.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes a perfectly elastic material and does not account for any other physical properties such as plastic deformation, friction, or material fatigue. It is suitable for basic educational purposes and simple mechanical applications but should not be used for precise engineering calculations.
