- Homework Statement
- Three springs are given. Their spring constants are k, 2k and 3k respectively. Their compressions are ## x_1 , x_2 , x_3 ## respectively. (Find the figure attached)

- Relevant Equations
- attached below.

I got the compression for the first one.

Second one, i am a bit confused. But i got ## x_2 = \frac{F}{2k} ##

In the third one, what will the compression be?

I have to get the ratio ## x_2 : x_3 ## . Then i will be able to get my answer.

Thanks.
