- An object of mass, m = 0.200kg, is hung from a single spring
with spring constant,
k = 80.0N/m. (Ignore the mass of
the spring.) The object is subject to a resistive force, f,
given by f =-bv
where v = the velocity of the mass in m/s.
- If the damped frequency, w’ = 0.75w0, the
undamped frequency, what is the value of “b”?
- What is the “Q” of the system?
- By what factor is the amplitude of the oscillation reduced
after 10 complete cycles?
