Rotational Oscillations

Q- Two disks with moments of inertia I1 (top disk) and I2 (bottom disk) are connected by a mass-less torsion spring which produces a restoring torque with magnitude |τ| =  c |θ12| on each disk, where θ1 and θ2 are the angular positions of the disks. (You can imagine that this system is free…
