Homework Help: Object attached in between two or more springs

  1. Jul 23, 2015 #1
    if an object is attached in between two springs, the spring combination is called parallel combination

    then what do you call an object attached in between 1 spring on the left side and 2 springs on the right side of the object,?
    or an object attached in between 1 in the left and 3 on the opposite side?

    does there spring constant be added just like in a parallel combination??

    Yes it would be a parallel combination - and you would simply add their spring constants .
