Unformatted text preview: m 1 = m 2 /2 and k 1 = k 2 /2. Show that its normal modes are Figure P5 6. In Problem 5, if a force is applied to m 1 to deflect it by unity and the system is released from this position, determine the equation of motion of each mass by the normal mode summation method. 7. Assume in Problem 5 that an earthquake causes the ground to oscillate in the horizontal direction according to the equation t X x g g ω sin = . Determine the response of the building and plot it against 1 . k k m 2m l l l m m k k nk x 1 x 2...
