question

The spring stretches more for a heavier weight.

answer

Place a 50 g weight on spring #1, and release it. Eventually, the weight will come to rest at an equilibrium position, with the spring somewhat stretched compared to its original (unweighted) length. At this point, the upward force of the spring balances the force of gravity on the weight.
