consider two different masses m1 and m2. They are connected together by a spring. Assuming the spring has a spring constant k. Assume the equilibrium positions are x1= 0 and x2 = 0. Find the period of oscillation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the the angular frequency is a function of both masses not just one mass like a fixed system.

im really stuck on this one
