The steady-state, undamped-displacement-amplitude response of a linear system on a single nonlinear spring due to a force excitation which varies sinusoidally with time is investigated. The force-displacement relation of the spring is  
F=k(x+εx3)(1)
The Fourier component of the displacement-amplitude response of the system at the forcing frequency and its third harmonic are considered.
