Question: Finding the zero roots of an equation


Hi guys,

I am trying to determine the first 5 eigen frequencies of a bending beam with rotational and translational spring supports. This is done by setting the determinant of the coefficient matrix equal to zero. I use RootFInder -> Analytic to find the first 5 roots between 0.001 and 0.1. After I substitute the roots back in to the equation they do not give me a zero value.

Can someone see where this goes wrong?
