Frequency Shift ! System oscillates at Classication: if 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 (0 2 )2 +(b )2(or similar)cos( t + ) is the angular frequency of the driver. Phase dierence between driver and oscillation: resonant = 0b 1 2( 2m0 )2tan( ) =b 2 m(0 2 )...
