k(spring constant) inversly proportional to l(length) ...

k1/k = L/L1 

length of two parts are L/3 , 2L/3

comparing spring constant of each part with original we get

k1  = 3k (spring constant of smaller part)

k2 = 3k/2 (spring constant of larger part)

							Sir u r wrong @sagar Because if a spring is cut in m:n .Then the resultant springs having stiffness (m+n)/n and (m+n)/m respectively .VSYMADE EASY

							Spring constant is inversely proportional to length but from your formula it is directly proportional so please render changes in your formula The  correct formula should be If spring is cut in ratio m:n then(m+n)/m and (m+n)/n
