Abstract: This paper presents a few results on the free vibration of a finite elastic dielectric with linear piezoelectromagnetism. Following the proof of selfadjointness, the orthogonality of modes corresponding to different frequencies is proved. A variational principle is given in Rayleigh quotient form for the natural frequency. The variational principle is mixed in the sense that all field variables can be varied independently, and it can be used to generate other variational principles.
