Maximum displacement of a coupled pendulum

  • #1

Homework Statement:

How are the maximum displacements of each pendulum related for ω1 and ω2? Draw a sketch that describes the motion of the system in each case

Homework Equations:

ω1 =√(g/l)
ω2=√(g/l+2k/m)
Hi,
So I have this question to solve and I have no idea how to do it.
It states: ''How are the maximum displacements of each pendulum related for ω1 and ω2? Draw a sketch that describes the motion of the system in each case. ''

The 2 angular frequencies that I have found are ω1 =√(g/l) and ω2=√(g/l+2k/m)

Hello Astrogirl, ##\qquad## :welcome: ##\qquad## !
The 2 angular frequencies that I have found are ω1 =√(g/l) and ω2=√(g/l+2k/m)
Then you must know something we don't know, because ##l## doesn't appear in the problem statement.

Please post your work ! How did you find ##\omega_1## and ##\omega_2\ ? ##
