Problems with Maple? Here are the commands I used.
I know that many of you have been having problems with maple. I've asked around and have heard that sometimes maple has problems plotting more than four functions simultaneously. So I'll stop asking you to do this. If you're having problems with maple crashing/freezing more than once on you then try saving your work as a *.mws worksheet and working on a different computer. If you're having problems printing, then try this as well.
Plot x1, x2, and x3 on the same graph, over t=0..10.
Now compute the energies of (x1,v1), (x2,v2), and (x3,v3). Plot the energies as a function of time.
Discuss the solutions and the energies.
