When a mass is suspended separately by two different springs, in successive order, then the time period of oscillations is $$t _1$$ and $$t_2$$ respectively. If it is connected by both springs as shown in the figure below, then the time period of oscillation becomes $$t_0.$$ The correct relation between $$t_0,$$ $$t_1$$ & $$t_2$$ is:

1. ${{\mathrm{t}}_{0}}^{2}={{\mathrm{t}}_{1}}^{2}+{{\mathrm{t}}_{2}}^{2}$

2. ${{\mathrm{t}}_{0}}^{-2}={{\mathrm{t}}_{1}}^{-2}+{{\mathrm{t}}_{2}}^{-2}$

3. ${{\mathrm{t}}_{0}}^{-1}={{\mathrm{t}}_{1}}^{-1}+{{\mathrm{t}}_{2}}^{-1}$

4. ${\mathrm{t}}_{0}={\mathrm{t}}_{1}+{\mathrm{t}}_{2}$

A spring elongates by a length 'L' when a mass 'M' is suspended to it. Now a tiny mass 'm' is attached to the mass 'M' and then released. The new time period of oscillation will be:

1.  $$2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{\left(\right. M + m \left.\right) l}{Mg}}$$

2. $$2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{ml}{Mg}}$$

3. $$2 \pi \sqrt{L / g}$$

4. $$2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{Ml}{\left(\right. m + M \left.\right) g}}$$
