Physics 3221 Mechanics I Fall Term 2010 Quiz 4 This is a 15 min. quiz (closed book). There are two problems (the second one is on the back). M 30 M 20 M 10 0 10 20 30 M 2 M 1 0 1 2 t x L t R Figure 1: An illustration for Problem 1. Problem 1. [2 pts] The graph above shows the response of: (A) a damped oscillator to an impulse forcing function (B) an undamped oscillator to an impulse forcing function (C) a damped oscillator to a step forcing function (D) an undamped oscillator to a step forcing function (E) This is a trick question. This oscillator is not responding.
