I am currently doing the following problem: Two identical undamped oscillators, A and B, each of mass m and natural (angular) frequency $\omega_0$, are coupled in such a way that the coupling ...
I would like to set up the equations of motion for a simple spring oscillator. Let's have a spring lying horizontally; we attach a small mass $m$ to the (massless) spring. The force of the spring ...
In an oscillations exercise there is a spring attached to another spring, attached to a block. Long story short: I have to find the global $k$. In the solutions it says: "Because the springs are ...
Possible Duplicate: How could this damped oscillator ever go to infinity? Or negative infinity for that matter? Consider this ! Where I purposely drew the right arrow bigger than the left ...
This is an ODE problem,but I cannot visualize why it can go to infinity or negative infinity. Consider $$x'' -6x' + 8x = 0$$ Where $x''$ is acceleration, $-6x'$ is the ...
