MA-366, Spring 2004, Test 2 2 Problem 2. (15 points) A spring-mass system is governed by the equation y 00 C S y 0 C 2y D 0 ; where S ± 0 is the damping constant. (a) Find the least value of S , for which the mass will cross the equilibrium position at most once, regardless of the initial conditions. Explain. Answer: The characteristic equation is N 2 C SN C 2 D 0 . It has complex roots, if 0 ² S< 2 p 2 ; and non-positive real roots (repeated or not) for S ± 2 p 2 . In the first case, the mass crosses the equilibrium
