A weighing machine consists of a 2 kg pan resting on a spring in this condition, with the pan resting on the spring, the length of the spring is 200 mm. When a mass of 20 kg is placed on the pan, the length of the spring becomes 100 mm. For the spring, the un-deformed length L and the spring constant K (stiffness) are
A
L $$=$$ 220 mm, K $$=$$ 1862 N/m
B
L $$=$$ 210 mm, K $$=$$ 1960 N/m
C
L $$=$$ 200 mm, K $$=$$ 19860 N/m
D
L $$=$$ 200 mm, K $$=$$ 2156 N/m
