The normal modes are obtained by setting either A or B equal to zero. Snapshots of the spring in each of these modes are shown in Fig. 6 and Fig. 7. The ﬁrst mode should reproduce the result of Exercise 4.16. And indeed, since √ angle there was deﬁned to be 2θ, the result of this exercise gives a the √ frequency of 1 − cos 2θ ω = 2ω sin θ, in agreement with Exercise 4.16. 4.34. Coupled and damped The F = ma equations are ure 6 mx 1 ¨ = mx 2 ¨ = −kx1 − k(x1 − x2 ) − bx1 , ˙ −kx2 − k(x2 − x1 ) − bx2 . ˙ (123) Adding and subtracting these equations gives m(¨1 + x2 ) + b(x1 + x2 ) + k(x1 + x2 ) x ¨ ˙ ˙ = 0, m(¨1 − x2 ) + b(x1 − x2 ) + 3k(x1 − x2 ) x ¨ ˙ ˙ = 0.
