Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Letisha on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 7:39pm.

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.
