## Equivalent Stiffness of Two Springs in Series Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Equivalent Stiffness of Springs = (Stiffness of Spring 1*Stiffness of Spring 2)/(Stiffness of Spring 1+Stiffness of Spring 2)
Keq = (K1*K2)/(K1+K2)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Equivalent Stiffness of Springs - (Measured in Newton per Meter) - Equivalent Stiffness of Springs is the single stiffness of spring obtained by combining different spring constants.
Stiffness of Spring 1 - (Measured in Newton per Meter) - The Stiffness of Spring 1 is the force per unit length required to deflect the first spring.
Stiffness of Spring 2 - (Measured in Newton per Meter) - The Stiffness of spring 2 is the force per unit length required to deflect the second spring.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Stiffness of Spring 1: 49 Newton per Millimeter --> 49000 Newton per Meter (Check conversion ​here)
Stiffness of Spring 2: 51 Newton per Millimeter --> 51000 Newton per Meter (Check conversion ​here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Keq = (K1*K2)/(K1+K2) --> (49000*51000)/(49000+51000)
Evaluating ... ...
Keq = 24990
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
24990 Newton per Meter -->24.99 Newton per Millimeter (Check conversion ​here)
24.99 Newton per Millimeter <-- Equivalent Stiffness of Springs

## Equivalent Stiffness of Two Springs in Series Formula

Equivalent Stiffness of Springs = (Stiffness of Spring 1*Stiffness of Spring 2)/(Stiffness of Spring 1+Stiffness of Spring 2)
Keq = (K1*K2)/(K1+K2)

## What is stiffness?

Stiffness is the extent to which an object resists deformation in response to an applied force. The more flexible an object is, the less stiff it is.
