3.) Overdamping: In the case where ω 2 o < γ 2 , the roots of the equation are real. We can define ω 2 = γ 2 - ω 2 0 (44) So that the general solution becomes x ( t ) = e - γ t A 1 e ω 2 t + A 2 e - ω 2 t (45) The motion is not oscillatory. The displacement goes to zero asymptotically, but not as fast as a critically damped system. The velocity is ˙ x ( t ) = - γ x + e - γ t ω 2 A 1 e ω 2 t - ω 2 A 2 e - ω 2 t (46) For all illustrated paths on the phase diagram, the asymptotic paths at long times are along the dashed curve ˙ x = - ( γ - ω 2 ) x . On in a special case (see assignment 3) does the phase path asymptote at the other dashed curve. 6

Precise paths depend on initial conditions x 0 and ˙ x 0 . example: Consider a pendulum of length l with a mass m at the end, moving through oil with decreasing θ . There is a resistive force present of F = 2 m g/l ( l ˙ θ ). Evaluate the type of damping in this system.

### What students are saying

• 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.
