Unformatted text preview: Linear second-order differential equations with constant coefficients and nonzero right-hand side We return to the damped, driven simple harmonic oscillator d 2 y dt 2 + 2 b dy dt + 2 y = F sin t We note that this differential equation is linear We call y c the general solution which solves the homogeneous equation d 2 y c dt 2 + 2 b dy c dt + 2 y c = 0 We call y p the particular solution which solves the inhomogeneous equation d 2 y p dt 2 + 2 b dy p dt + 2 y p = F sin t Linear equations with nonzero right-hand side continued Because the differential equation is linear, in general y ( t ) = y c ( t ) + y p ( t ) For the damped, driven simple-harmonic oscillator, with F ( t ) = F sin t driving force, y ( t ) = y c ( t ) + F q ( 2- 2 ) 2 + 4 b 2 2 sin ( t- ) The y c depends on whether the system is underdamped, overdamped, or critically damped To find a solution to a given situation, we need to know the position and velocity of the oscillator at some time (eg t = 0), or alternately the position at two different times Example: Damped, driven simple harmonic oscillator Example: At t = 0 we have y ( t = 0) = 0 and dy dt | t =0 = 0 The system is underdamped, so that b < The equation of motion is given by d 2 y p dt 2 + 2 b dy p dt + 2 y p = F sin t The solution is y ( t ) = y c ( t ) + y p ( t ) y c ( t ) = ce- bt sin ( t + ) Here = q 2- b 2 y p ( t ) = F q ( 2- 2 ) 2 + 4 b 2 2 sin ( t- ) tan = 2 b 2- 2 Example continued So we have expressions for y ( t ) and dy dt , y ( t ) = ce- bt sin ( t + ) + F q ( 2- 2 ) 2 + 4 b 2 2 sin ( t- ) dy dt =- ce- bt [ b sin ( t + )- cos ( t + )]+ F q ( 2- 2...
