okay so i need help with the problem because my teacher gave it to us today and he doesnt teach the class anything.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it regards a body suspended in between two vertical springs, each in equilibrium, with length L.

he asked us to calculate the amount of required force to pull the body horizontally as if along the x axis, with regards to the angle (theta) with would be created by the initial vertical position of the spring and the new position. THEN he asked us to use a taylor series to show him, something, if anyone has any ideas what that series could prove..help? thanks

i just dont know where to start because he never explained the relations when more than one spring is involved, nor pulling them horizontally with a taylor series proof that that matter. the only equation i know is hooks equation f=-kx
