The middle two masses move nearly twice as fast as the outer two. The second column of v indicates that the two left‐most masses are moving anti‐synchronous to the two right‐most masses. This set of oscillation has the 2nd lowest mode. The third column of v shows that the two outside masses are moving in opposition to the two inner masses, and this mode is the third highest. The fourth column of v, with the greatest mode, is when the first and third mass are moving together and opposite of the second and fourth. This set of motion has the highest mode. 15.2) a) Calculations for the general matrix were supplied...
