1. i. One of the following ODE’s represents the displacement y ( t ) in a spring-mass system with resonance? Circle it. 3 y 00 +108 y = 4 sin 6 t 3 y 00 +108 = 2 sin 6 t 3 y 00 +108 y = 6 cos 3 t 3 y 00 +111 y 0 +108 y = cos 6 t ANS. Frequency of external force and natural frequency match in the last equation. So its the first one. ii For a spring-mass system system with mass equal to 4 kg, spring contant equal to 9 N/m, which damping constant γ causes critical damping? ANS. γ = 4 mk = 6 iii For a spring-mass system system with mass equal to 4 kg, spring contant equal to 9 N/m, damping constant equal to 5, and external force equal to sin t what does the transient part of the solution look like? (Do not determine any constants.) ANS. Since γ 2 - 4 mk is negative the transient part of the solution is a combination of sine and cosine multiplied by a decaying exponential. iv. What is the definition of the Laplace transform of g ( t )? ANS. F ( s ) = Z 0 e - st f ( t ) dt v What is the following Laplace transform: L{ t 2 e 2 t } ANS. 2 ( s - 2) 3 vi. Circle all the functions among the following that have a Laplace transform : e t 3 t 1 - t | t - 1 | t - 1 e t 1 / 2 ANS. The last two. vii. Suppose that the Laplace transform of y is Y . If y (0) = 2 and y 0 (0) = - 3, then find the Laplace transform of y 00 . ANS. s ( sY - 2) + 3 viii. Suppose that a force of - 3 δ ( t - 1) acts on an object of mass 1 kg. If y (0) = 2 and y 0 (0) = 2, then find y 0 (2).
