AMath 250 ASSIGNMENT 9 Fall 2008 Note that this is not the last assignment. Submit all problems by Noon on Tuesday, November 25 th in the drop boxes across from MC4066. All solutions must be clearly stated and fully justified . From Problem Set 5, do: # 2 (Except (b)(i) which you did in the last asst.) # 4 (All parts; recall solution to (i) was c 1 e - t [1 1] + c 2 e - 5 t [1 - 1]) Also do the following Oscillator Problem: Suppose a mechanical oscillator obeys the IVP y + 4 y + 5 y = 0 y (0) = 0 , y (0) = 1 (1) a) Write this as a first-order vector IVP, that is, an IVP of the form x = Ax x (0) = a (2) where A is a constant 2

Unformatted text preview: × 2 matrix and ~a is a constant vector. b) Find the solution to (2), hence write down the solution to (1). c) Sketch the phase orbits of the general solution to the vector DE in (2), highlighting the solution curve to the IVP (2) for t ≥ 0. d) Based on your phase portrait, is the motion under-, over-, or critically damped? e) Is the speed of the mass at a maximum just before, after, or as it crosses the equilibrium position for the first time? [Hint: speed = | y | ; use (c).]...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
