Problem 1 (30%) The two degree of freedom system shown below has two masses, two springs, two dashpots, two displacements, and is excited by one force. (a) Show with two sketches the non-conservative virtual work δW nc done as virtual displacements δx 1 and δx 2 take place. Find the kinetic energy T and potential energy V for this system in terms of generalized coordinates x 1 and x 2 and their time derivatives. Writeand their time derivatives....
