Equivalent spring constant of a system

  1. Oct 13, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data and the attempt at a solution
    I tried to find the equivalent sprint constant using two points of equivalence. The first is with respect to theta. The second is with respect to the datum x as shown in the images below. The two methods yield two different answers which is not what I expected. Did I do something wrong?
