(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An object of mass m is attached to three springs each of springs contant k. If the object is pushed slightly towards one of the springs find the time period of the oscillation

The springs are at equal angles from each other - which is 120 degrees.

The other ends of springs are attached to walls

2. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to start this question which contains three springs!

By the way, luckily i got the answer which is 2∏√(2m/3k)

plz give the solution along with concept - i need to know how to solve problems where object is attached to more than one spring
