# Articles for subject Coupled Oscillators

• The loaded string is a classic problem of coupled oscillators where $$N$$ small masses are threaded onto a light string. It makes a nice transition for considering the continuum case and waves.
• The continuum limit of the loaded string is derived, arriving at the one dimensional wave equation.
• Coupling together two or more oscillators introduces a whole new level of complexity. It turns out that there is a particular way of looking at the system that makes it simple to solve the motion.
