I have this homework question which I don't understand how to do it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Since I am not homew right now, I can't post up the picture. I will explain what the picture looks like.

Picture:

___ = Wall

$ = Spring

| = Connection

(*) = mass

____________

$ 2.8N/cm

$ 6N/cm

(*) 41

So basically we have 2 springs with diffrent elasticities hanging from the wall. And below the springs is a mass with 41N.

1. What distance will the spring of constant 2.8 N/cm stretch? Answer in units of cm.

2. In the same series spring system, what distance will the spring of constant 6 N/cm stretch? Answer in units of cm.
