## Question:

a) Two springs with spring constants {eq}k_1 {/eq} and {eq}k_2 {/eq} are connected in parallel. what is the effective spring constant {eq}k_{eff} {/eq}?

b) Two springs with spring constants {eq}k_1 {/eq} and {eq}k_2 {/eq} are connected in series. what i s the effective spring constant, {eq}k_{eff} {/eq}?

## Spring :

Spring is a mechanical component used to absorb and release energy whenever required. When the load is acting on the spring, the coil of the spring is subjected to strain energy, and the value of strain energy depends stored upon the value of spring stiffness.
