To solve two 2nd order coupled differential equation using ODE45?

4 views (last 30 days)
I have the the following 2nd order differential equation that is needed to be solved.
The initial state are [3 9] for and respectively.
The time interval is [0: 0.05: 1] i.e 21 time steps.
The and are functions of time available for initial 20 time steps (can take as ones for working example).
I don't have any prior experince with ODE45 . Any guidance to solve this problem will be appreciated.

Replace each 2nd order ODE by two 1st order ODEs. e.g. set V1 = X1', V2 = X2', then V1' = (50*sin(f(t) - V1)*V2')/sin(f(t)), V2' = g(t) - etc.
You will also need initial conditions for V1 (X1') and V2 (X2') as well as for X1 and X2.
