1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The springs AB and BC have stiffness k and an unstretched length of l. Determine the displacement d of the cord from the wall when a force F is applied to the cord. See Picture attached. Given: l = 3 m k = 600 N/m F = 200 N 2. Relevant equations Fspring= ks s= l - l0 ƩF=0 3. The attempt at a solution The force of the spring is 600(s) and I know that s = length of spring stretched - length unstretched. So for the sum of forces in the x direction I get 2(600)(s)[d/√(d2+1.52)] = 200... I divide both sides by 2 and get (600)(s)[d/√(d2+1.52)] = 100... from here I know that I can get s from equation above thus it becomes 600[√(d2+1.52) - 1.5][d/√(d2+1.52)] = 100... but I don't know what else to do from here... any replies would be greatly appreciated.
