A body A of mass 1kg is resting on a table and connected to body B and C as shown. The surface are smooth and string and spring are massless. The string is inextensible. Find the extension in the spring if force constant of spring $=R=50 N/m$ take $(g=10 m/s^2)$

\[(a)\;0.2 m \quad (b)\; 0.1 m \quad (c)\;0.05 m \quad(d)\;0.25 m \]

Can you answer this question?

Free body diagram of mass 3 kg in
For the system net pulling force is due to mass B and massC
$F=(2+3) g=5 \times 10=50 N$
Totla mass to be pulled $=(1+2+3)$
$\qquad=6 kg$
Therefore $ a=\large\frac{50}{6} $$m/s^2$
From free body diagram
$30 -kx=ma$
$30-kx=3 \bigg( \large\frac{50}{6} \bigg)$
$\quad= \large\frac{5}{50}$
Hence b is the correct answer.
