Abstract

In this paper, we apply a novel variational approach to the nonlinear oscillator of a mass attached to a stretched wire. Comparison with the exact results is made, revealing that the present method is efficient, straightforward and easy. The method can also be easily extended to other nonlinear oscillations.
