How do I convert this into a mechanical network? like a circuit network.

my attempted work is this:

is this schematic correct?

  • $\begingroup$ not necessarily. the components should not be changed. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 21, 2016 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ Than I am not sure what you mean, because I would think that this is already a mechanical network. The only thing that you could change is to also connect B and K3 to the wall on the left (since they are both stationary, only the initial lengths change). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ sorry for the confusion. i will edit my post and attach my attempted work. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 21, 2016 at 15:10
  • $\begingroup$ That makes things a lot more clear (I am just not used to using this kind of representation). But it seems to be correct. $\endgroup$

I think what you have is correct, provided the friction and spring constants are inverses.

I am more comfortable with the force-voltage analogy and would create the equivalent one as follows.
