A 1.2 kg block is hung from a vertical spring, causing the spring to stretch by 2.4 cm How much further will the spring stretch if a 0.60 kg block is added to the 1.2 kg block?

\(1.2:2.4=(1.2+0.6):(2.4+x)\)

 

\(1.2\times2.4+1.2x=2.4\times1.8\)

 

\(1.2x=2.4\times1.8-1.2\times2.4\)

 

\(\large x=\frac{(2.4\times1.8-1.2\times2.4)cm\times kg}{1.2kg}\)

 

\(x = 1.2 cm\) 

 

\(The \ spring \ expands \ by \ a \ further \ 1.2cm.\)
