Thank you!

I'm just completing this method w/ my magnetic oscillator.

I presume for "... approximate energy?" approx. total E was assumed? However, I read somewhere for harmonic oscillators only <K> = <U>.

In that case 2<K or U> = <E>. Not tru for a non-lin. osc. So in my case K max equal tot. E, but not 2<E>.

I have the force law for the magnetic repulsion. Integrating that over the amplitude will give the total U which is not the harmonic case where the force is lin. (prop. to the distance) this the reason????

bc
