## Homework Statement

Hi

I cant seem to get a diagram for this question. Can anyone help and also please explain the subsequent diagram. This is the question. A particle of mass 0.8kg is attached to the ends of 2 identical light elastic springs of natural length 1.6m and modulus of elasticity 16N. The free ends of the springs are attached to 2 points where points A and B which are 4m apart on a smooth horizontal surface. The point C lies between A and B such that ABC is a straight line and AC = 2.5m. The particle is held at C and then released from rest.

My textbook has tensions acting in different directions. Can anyone explain? Thanks
