Homework Help: Reduced mass concept

  1. Dec 11, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The Concept of the reduced mass was introduced

    2. Relevant equations

    What is the application for the μ,which we have to learn, in questions like in shm or collision

    So i was just wondering if you could show me some examples where in the concept of reduced mass has been applied effectively!

    Thanks a lot!
