    The question is: What are the implications in each model for the stress across each element? And it gives the diagrams of the Maxwell and Kelvin models like so:

    Does that mean I have to answer what happens when I put stress on the dashpots as well? Or just stress on the springs?

    Am I right in saying that nothing happens to the springs in both diagrams if I apply stress to the dashpots?
