  1. Physics 321 Hour 33 Coupled Oscillators I

  2. x1 x1 x2 k2 k3 k1 Example I

  3. Assume solutions of the form: Note that is the same in both equations! – This defines a “normal mode.” Then Normal Modes

  4. Eigenvalues are • Eigenvectors describe motion of the normal modes • Normal coordinates (not very useful!) Normal Modes
