Unformatted text preview: smaller object that is mechanically coupled to it (or vice versa in the micro/nano systems world). The figure below depicts this situation where a force F is applied to a small mass m to position a large mass M. The coupling between objects is modeled by a spring constant k and damping coefficient c. a. Write the equations of motion for this system. b. Calculate the transfer function Y(s)/F(s). Assume zero initial conditions. You can check your solution using Matlab commands similar to those provided in Homework 1 for Problem 4. c. What are the poles and zeros of this transfer function? Homework 2 Page 1 o...
