The clay sticks to the table so that the the table and clay oscillate up and down together. Finally, the table comes to rest 6 cm below its original position.

-->What is the effective spring constant of all four springs taken together?

i did the following: F = kx

so F/x = k

i'm thinking the only force contributing to this is dropping (force) of the modeling clay on the platform. or does the weight (gravity) of the platform contribute to any of this?
