Problem Details

Rank in order, from most to least, the elastic potential energy ( Us )a to ( Us )d stored in the springs of The figure shows four springs. Spring, labelled as a, has a constant k and is compressed by a distance d. Spring, labelled as b, has a constant k and is stretched a distance d. Spring, labelled as c, has a constant 2 times k and is stretched a distance d. Spring, labelled as d, has a constant k and is stretched a distance 2 times d..
