AE 352: Aerospace Dynamics II, Fall 2008 Homework 4 Due Friday, September 26 Problem 1. Consider a mass resting on the floor, and attached to a wall with a spring and damper. Let m = 4, k = 4, c = 1. A force F acts on the particle. (Note this is a 1D problem) (a) Find the equations of motion for this system. (b) Find the undamped natural frequency ω , and the damping ratio ζ . (c) Find the free (a.k.a. complementary) solution of this system. Is the system underdamped, critically damped, or overdamped? Plot the solution (i.e. plot x vs t ). (d) Let F = F 0 cos(3 t ). Find the steady state solution driven by this forcing. (e) Let F = F 0 cos( ω t ). Plot the amplification factor versus frequency, as in Figure 3-19 in Greenwood. What is the resonant frequency ω R ? Problem 2. Problem 4.4 in Greenwood. Problem 3. Consider the following system of particles: m 1 = 2 .
