HELP!

I am currently working on the derivation of the equations of motion for three coupled pendula, The mass and length of each pendulum is the same, but the central pendulum has some sort of resistive degenerative force due to submersion in a liquid. I have calculated the normal modes without the resistance of the system using the lagrangian approach.

How can i do this, with the resistance integrated into the system?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
