Unformatted text preview: the results from Chapter 4, gives A = g/(ω 2 − ω0 ) = g/(2ω 2 − k/m), and B = 0. So the entire solution (including the homogeneous solution from Exercise 6.25, under the assumption that ω < k/m) is r(t) = g 2ω 2 − k/m cos ω t + C cos(ω0 t + φ). We see that the motion goes to infinity if ω = undamped driven oscillator at resonance. (288) k/2m. In this case, we have an
