An automobile can be considered to be mounted on four identical springs as far as vertical oscillations are concerned. The springs of a certain car are adjusted so that the oscillations have a frequency of 3 Hz.
(a) What is the spring constant of each spring if the mass of the car is 1400 kg and the weight is evenly distributed over the springs?
N/m

(b) What will be the vibration frequency if five passengers, averaging 71.0 kg each, ride in the car with an even distribution of mass?
Hz
