Main Question or Discussion Point

What is the difference? I used to assume First order was a Single DOF system and a Second order was a 2 DOF system. Can anyone give me some clarity.

Thanks

nth order systems have an nth order derivative as their highest term and need n boundary conditions to find a solution.
