Free Length is the overall length of a spring in the unloaded position.<br>
Solid Height is the length of a compression spring under sufficient load to bring all coils into contact with adjacent coils.
Spring Rate (stiffness)
Spring Rate is the change in load per unit deflection in pounds per inch (lb. /in.) or
Newtons per millimeter (N/mm).
The dimensions, along with the load and deflection requirements, determine the stresses in the spring. When a compression spring is loaded, the coiled wire is stressed in torsion.
