In the parallel spring system, the springs
are positioned so that the 44 N weight
stretches each spring equally. The spring con-
stant for the left-hand spring is 3.6 N/cm and
the spring constant for the righ-hand spring
is 6.4 N/cm.

How far down will the 44 N weight stretch
the springs?
Answer in units of cm.

  • Physics - ,

    The forces are additive.

    F1+F2=44N
    3.6*x+6.4x=44
    solve for x.
