Homework Help: Equilibrium of a Particle

  1. Nov 19, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The question are included in the picture that are uploaded. So i know that for these systems to be at equilibrium, the net force in the x and y axis must equal to zero. I wanted to write in the question and the diagram but i dont know how else to put it.


    2. Relevant equations
    F=ks, ∑F x=0, ∑Fy=0

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried breaking it down into components for x and y but i dont know what value to use to determine the unstretched length of the spring.
