# Question

A spring (spring 1) with a spring constant of is attached to a wall and connected to another weaker spring (spring 2) with a spring constant of on a horizontal surface. Then an external force of 100 N is applied to the end of the weaker spring (#2). How much potential energy is stored in each spring?
