System oscillates at • Classification: if ω is real, the system is underdamped. If it is imaginary, the system is overdamped. If it is zero, the system is critically damped. • Energy (Lightly Damped): E = 1 kA(t)2 2 Driven Oscillations: • Solution: x(t) = √ F0 2 m2 (ω0 −ω 2 )2 +(bω )2 (or similar) cos(ω t + ξ ) • ω is the angular frequency of the driver. • Phase difference between driver and oscillation: • ωresonant = ω0 b 1 − 2( 2mω0 )2 tan(ξ ) = −bω 2 m(ω0 −ω 2 ) ...
