## Summary:

- Find the natural frequencies of small oscillations

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

Given a mechanic-problem, I've linearised a system of two differential equations, which the origin was Lagrange-equations.

The system looks like this;

$$ 5r \ddot{\theta} + r \ddot{\phi} + 4g \theta = 0´ \\ 3r \ddot{\theta} + 2r \ddot{\phi} + 3g \phi = 0 $$

$$ $$

And I shall find the natural frequencies of small oscillations of Theta and Phi. Are you supposed to solve the equations, then check for where the frequencys diverge?
