A maximum of x(t) is a positive displacement corresponding to the mass’s attaining a maximum distance below the equilibrium position, whereas a minimum of x9t) is a negative displacement corresponding to the mass’s attaining a maximum height above the equilibrium position. We refer to either case as an extreme displacement of the mass. The particular solution is the equation of motion. #2 #6 If you need to find the amplitude of motion, recall from trig: ( 29 φ + = + = t A t c t c t x sin sin cos ) ( 2 1 where 2 2 2 1 c c A + = and is the phase angle defined by

The motions will be modeled by 2 2 2 2 = + + x dt dx dt x d where m = 2 , m k = 2 . Case I: 2 2-The system is said to be overdamped . The solution is + =----t e c e c e t x t t 2 2 2 2 2 1 ) ( . This equation represents a smooth an nonoscillatory motion. Case II: 2 2 =-The system is said to be critically damped . The solution is ( 29 t c c e t x t 2 1 ) ( + =-. Any slight decrease in the damping force would result in oscillatory motion. Case III: 2 2 <-The system is said to be underdamped .
