Also, in this limit we are pulling the spring so slowly that its stretch follows exactly the applied force, so 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 also consider the resonant case, ω=ω0. Then A F0 / m (0) 2 (0 ) 2 F0 , but since Q=ω0/γ, this is m0 F0Q F0 Q (17:10). So in resonance, the amplitude is Q times what it is at very low frequencies. This factor m0 2 k 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.
