suppose that the two springs have different spring constants k1=280 N/m and k2=260 N/m and the mass of the object is m=14 kg. Find the frequency of oscillation of the block in Hz.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the first picture on this site is what the problem looks like. Its a mass between two springs that are attached to walls.

i know that angular frequency equals the square root of k/m. but i don't know how to do it when there are two springs involved. Please help Asap. Thanks so much
