Problem
Use of the Fourier series
We would like to study the behavior of a damped harmonic oscillator that is driven by a force F(t) as
shown in figure 1. Unfortunately, we have only learned how to solve thi

5.3. (a) Show that the following are solutions to the one-dimensional wave equation
(i) y = A sin 2 (t x / v), (ii) y = A sin ( 2 ) ( x + vt ), (iii) y = A sin 2
Coupled oscillations
Consider two masses connected as shown below by springs. The left end of the leftmost spring is
attached to a rigid immovable wall. There is no dissipation. The springs have equa
Assignment 5 report - Coupled oscillations
The equations of motion for the two masses shown in figure 1 are
Mx1 = kx1 + k ( x2 x1 ) = k ( x2 2 x1 ) ,
mx2 = k ( x2 x1 ) .
