Question:

Consider the diagram below. All pulleys are massless and frictionless. We would like to find a simpler equivalent system for the motion of the mass (i.e., for the same {eq}x {/eq}), Find the equivalent spring, in terms of {eq}{{K}_{1}}\text{ and }{{K}_{2}} {/eq}.

HINT: Use the equivalent displacement under similar force method, the energy method will messy.

Spring Constant:

It is defined as the stiffness properties of spring. Spring constant is measured in Newton per meter and it is denoted by a term K. Spring constant is directly proportional to force and inversely proportional to displacement.
