Force in inclined spring: k [0 . 6(¯ x x ) + 0 . 8(¯ y y )]. Use Newton’s second law in both x and y directions and rearrange to get EOMs: bracketleftbigg m m bracketrightbiggbraceleftbigg ¨ x ¨ y bracerightbigg + k bracketleftbigg 1 . 36 . 48 . 48 1 . 64 bracketrightbiggbraceleftbigg x y bracerightbigg = k bracketleftbigg 1 . 36 . 48 . 48 1 . 64 bracketrightbiggbraceleftbigg ¯ x ¯ y bracerightbigg 2. Setting det( K ω 2 M ) = 0 gives a quadratic characteristic equation whose two roots give the natural frequencies ω 2 1 = k/m and ω 2 2 = 2 k/m . From ( K ω 2 1 M ) u 1 = and ( K ω 2 2 M ) u 2 = , obtain the eigenvectors u 1 = braceleftbigg . 8 . 6 bracerightbigg , u 2 = braceleftbigg . 6 . 8 bracerightbigg The first eigenvector represents the first mode of vibration, which is simply vibration in the direction perpendicular to the inclined spring. The second mode is vibration aligned with the inclined spring. 3.
