Friday, November 17, 2006 NAME: D LMT/om g This exam consists of 5 problems, with points as labelled. Please write each of your answers
clearly and legibly. Don’t forget to explain yourself, and show all of your work! There are no calculators, cellphones, iPods, etc permitted during the exam. 1. (20 pts) The ODE for the position $(t) of a mass m attached to a spring (with constant
[9) including damping (coefﬁcient 6) is: mac” + bx’ + km = 0 (a) Show that this is a SturmLiouville equation. (b) State the orthogonality relation between the eigenfunctions acn of the equation, on some time interval (0, T). What sorts of (boundary) conditions on 55(2?) would
this require? (Ifng (; gTuRM’LIouVII/Lﬁ stE/‘w/ (1/,777c P266” [#49
