Unformatted text preview: Miscellaneous Topics A) Given a undamped spring-mass system be able to find the period without completely solving the DE. B) Given a spring-mass system with damping be able to decide if it underdamped,citically damped,or overdamped and sketch. C Be able to solve equations with parameters(constants without specifc values) Ay'' + By = 0 where A,B are positive. Problem: Suppose a spring mass system has a mass of 1 unit, a spring constant of 4 and a damping coefficient of 5. If the mass has the initial conditions x(0) = 2 and x´(0) = 1. Make a rough sketch of the equation of motion without solving the DE....
