Limited access

Two springs initially are horizontal and each have a length of $0.3 \text{ m}$, as shown above. They are both connected to supports and a block with mass $m$ at the center. The block is lowered $0.4 \text{ m}$ until it is at static equilibrium.

At that point, how much tension is there in each spring? The mass has weight $4 \text{ N}$.

A

$2.5 \text{ N}$

B

$2.7 \text{ N}$

C

$3.2 \text{ N}$

D

$3.3 \text{ N}$

E

$4.0 \text{ N}$
