If I had a quadratic equation, for a vibration problem and solved it to find the two frequencies, how do I know which is omega_1 and omega_2?
eg. omega^2 + 15167omega + 15000000 = 0
gives omega = 118 and 32.6
but what I want to know is how do I know which is omega_1 and omega_2, for further calculations?

Surely it's whichever one you choose it to be as long as your consistent?
