Homework Statement
The angle at the bottom is 25 degrees
Homework Equations
Springs Parallel;
keq = k1 +k2
Sum Forces = f1 + f2
x = f1/k1 = f2/k2
Springs Series;
1/keq = 1/k1 + 1/k2
Sum x = x1 +x2
F = k1x1 =k2x2
The Attempt at a Solution
Basically I'm having trouble finding the spring constant (Keq)23
I've worked out all the diagrams and if I could just find the spring constant I could then plug it into my FBD@E and find the tension. Then from there I can plug the tension into my Moment equation and find the force in spring one and solve for x.
