13.95: a) The net force on the block at equilibrium is zero, and so one spring (the one with m 00 . 2 1 Ν = k ) must be stretched three times as much as the one with m 00 . 6 2 Ν = k . The sum of the elongations is 0.200 m, and so one spring stretches 0.150 m and the other stretches 0.050 m, and so the equilibrium lengths are 0.350 m and 0.250 m. b) There are many ways to approach this problem, all of which of course lead to the result of Problem 13.96(b). The most direct way is to let m 150 . 0 1 = x and m, 050
