I am a chemist and I enjoy physics.

@DavidZ What happened to John, and his very nice answer to my question?

comment Solving for the resonant frequencies of a mass-spring system
I would like to side with John: The criteria cited as not having been met are 1. reference a specific physics concept: resonant frequencies of spring systems. 2. show some effort: all the math-jax alone without the thought behind the matricies should be enough effort. How can I improve this question? Also, I resent the homework tag. I am exploring this area of physics in my spare time: no academic enrollment.

@Bernhard That is precisely why this is a question.

comment Solving for the resonant frequencies of a mass-spring system
@V_Programmer I am curious how to get from the potential/kinetic energy Lagrangian to the resonant frequencies. I have a lagrangian for the same system written up here.

@CuriousOne for smaller systems I found this: Parametric resonance in coupled scillators driven by colored noise.
