Explain how to derive it?

We know deflection of spring= 64 wR^3N/cd^4.
Stiffness = load/ deflection.
So, subtitute R=D/2 & calculate stiffness, we get cd^4/8D^3n.

Deflection= 64w (r^3) n/Nd^4 where stiffness= load/deflection load p = w.

We know that radius r = D/2 and substitute i.e. deflection = 64w (D/2) ^3n/Nd^4=64wD^3n/8Nd^4.

= 8wD^3n/Nd^4.

Now stiffness = load/deflection = w/ (8wD^3n/Nd^4) = nd^4N/8D^3n.
