we expect zero phase lag (15:30). It is easy to show that the δ equation gives tan(0) or zero, as expected. We can

can have a huge effect, since Q can be very large in a system with little damping. Finally, if one drives at a very high
frequency, the inertia of the mass prevents a response, and the amplitude is essentially zero. The phase at high 1 PHYS 302: Unit 3 Viewing Notes – Athabasca University fr...
