Stiffness matrix for mass spring system
Please see attached file. How do i equate the mass spring system?
B2 The spring-mass system shown in Figure B2 is in tension, where the spring stiffnesses of the nth spring are denoted by kn , l is the separation of the supporting walls and m is the mass held between each spring
(a) Show, by equating the tension in each spring, that the stiffness matrix is given by [k] where:

...ongation or compression of spring k2 .Then, applying Newton's second Law to m1 we have:
In the other extreme, mass m3 will experience force F6 due to spring k4 and F5 due to spring k3. So that:
F6 = k4x4 and F5 = k3 | s' | ; ...
