ME163 Mechanical Vibrations (Winter 2009) HW-1 Due 1.15.08 in class -25% if late within 24 hours -50% if later than that 1. This problem is a review of some necessary background from mathematics. Consider the following differential equation ¨ x ( t ) + 2 ˙ x ( t ) + 2 = ˙ y ( t ) + 2 Such equation are often solved by taking the Laplace transform of the input y ( t ) and output x ( t ) which is defiend as follow X ( s ) = integraldisplay 0 e - st x ( t ) dt Y ( s ) = integraldisplay 0 e - st y ( t ) dt where s is a complex number. Take the Laplace transform of both sides of the equation with x (0) = ˙ x (0) = 0 , y (0) = 0 to obtain X ( s )( s 2 + 2 s + 2) = Y ( s )( s + 2) Divide X ( s ) by Y ( s ) to obtain a quantity called the Transfer Function H ( s ). H ( s ) = X ( s ) Y ( s ) = s + 2 s 2 + 2 s + 2 Later we will see that it determines how the output x ( t ) depends on the input y ( t ).We shall see more about H ( s ) later in the course, for now we would like to play with complex number We call the roots of the polynomial in the numerator of the transfer functin as zeors and that of the denominator as poles . Find the zeros and poles of the transfer function.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
