comment Modeling a two-mass, spring, damper system
@RetardedPotential I gave up trying to do it in terms of the variables, and just plugged in the numbers. Then MATLAB simplify worked. I think I have everything figured out, thanks for all the help!

@RetardedPotential This is the transfer function I'm getting for ${X}_{2}$. I have no idea how I can simplify this d.pr/i/cQUF. I'm using Mathematica for the algebra.

I've editing the original question to add my differential equations.

comment Modeling a two-mass, spring, damper system
When I try this, I end up with a transfer function that can't be simplified enough to put into Simulink.

comment Solving a statically indeterminate truss
@DavidZaslavsky OK, I'll do my best to make some more edits. However, I have no textbook to look in for help. This problem is for an applied math class where we are supposed to write a MATLAB function to solve the truss. The professor just assumes that we know how to do this.

comment Solving a statically indeterminate truss
@DavidZaslavsky Sorry about that. I'm not really looking for a direct answer to the homework question, but more of just which method to use to solve a statically indeterminate truss. I've edited my question to make this more clear.
