2 2) How does a phase space diagram change, if you start it with a bigger initial stretch? 3) How does a phase space diagram change, if the phase “δ” in x(t)=Acos(ωt-δ) changes? If you finish early: 1) Phase paths A and B both describe a harmonic oscillator with the same mass m. Which path describes the system with a bigger spring constant k?
