Consider the spring model x''−3x+3(x^3)=0 where the linear part of the spring is repulsive rather than attractive (for a normal spring it is attractive). Rewrite this as a system of first-order equations in x and y=x. x' = y' =

    I am thinking that there is a typo... are you sure it says rewrite as \[y=x\]?

    y=x'

    and we should find out (x,y)=(x,x')=state space vector.

    idk thatswhat tge directions say exactly i just copied and pasted we also had to solve for critical points which i already did

    yea i got the critical points but I used the jacobie eigenvalue

    the problem has three critical points that I showed you.

    Those of the problems like yours we should define a state space vector that includes independent component ,usually x and its derivatives are selected as components.

    whats space vector?

    state space vector is a vector which include all independent variable in a system. for example place velocity . acceleration are three component require to know in a third order system.

    So (x,v,a)=(x,x',x") is a state space vector.
