Spring with mass on end. The mass rotates in both counterclockwise and clockwise directions. The spring extends and retracts by varying amounts. Sometimes only the spring moves with the mass relatively still; sometimes only the mass rotates. What is happening? Figure by MIT OCW. Two Degrees of Freedom: System of Three Springs and Two Masses Consider the following: Figure 2: System of three springs and two masses. Figure by MIT OCW.
