Dynamics- a branch of applied mathematics (specifically classical mechanics) concerned with the study
of forces and torques and their effect on motion, as opposed to kinematics, which studies the motion of
Work: the transfer of energy that occurs when a force is applied through a distance; equal to the
product of the systems displacement and the force applied to the system in the direction of displacement.
Kinetic energy: the energy o

- Damping Effect: The effect of a mechanical resistance R is twofold. It produces a change in
the frequency of oscillation, and it causes the oscillations to decay with time.
- Waves: a disturbance that carries energy throug
