I have two second order differential equations:

y''[x] = g(y[w]-y[x])/a
y''[w] = 2g(y[x]-y[w])/b

It's equations describing a double pendulum system, and I need a symbolic solution.I tried

DSolve[{y''[x] == g(y[w]-y[x])/a,y''[w] == 2g(y[x]-y[w])/b},{y[x],y[w]}x,w]

but it didn't work. Can Mathematica student actually solve that? If yes, how?

I greatly appreciate the help
