As learnt in

Relation of velocity and displacement -

v= w\sqrt{A^{2}-x^{2}}

- wherein

\rightarrow  x is displacement from mean position

\rightarrow  A is Amplitude.


 V_{max.} = Aw = A\sqrt{\frac{K}{m}}                                                 \left [ \because \frac{K}{m} = w^{2} \right ]

V_{1} = A\sqrt{\frac{K_{1}}{m}}

V_{2} = A\sqrt{\frac{K_{2}}{m}}

\therefore Ratio = \frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}} = \sqrt{\frac{K_{2}}{K_{1}}}
