Unformatted text preview: the applied forcef is represented as a force source. The spring of Fig. 2.2.5 has a spring constant K and the force is a linear function of the relative displacement of the two ends of the spring. Thus f= K(x 2 -1 -1), (2.2.3) where I is the value of the relative displacement for which the force is zero. I K, I X2 x1 (b) (a) Fig. 2.2.5 A linear ideal spring for translational motion held in equilibrium by a forcef: (a) physical system; (b) circuit.
