Question

This problem is an example of critically damped harmonic motion.

A hollow steel ball weighing 4 pounds is suspended from a spring. This stretches the spring 1818 feet. The ball is started in motion from the equilibrium position with a downward velocity of 55 feet per second. The air resistance (in pounds) of the moving ball numerically equals 4 times its velocity (in feet per second) . Suppose that after t seconds the ball is y feet below its rest position. Find y in terms of t.

Take as the gravitational acceleration 32 feet per second per
second. (Note that the positive y direction is down in this
problem.)

Determine C1 and C2 of the following damped motion
A 4-lb weight stretches a spring 4 ft. Initially the weight
released from 2ft above equilibrium position with downward velocity
2 ft/sec. Find the equation of motion x(t), provided that the
subsequent motion takes place in a medium that offers a damping
force numerically equal to (1/2) times the instantaneous
velocity

A steel ball weighing 128 lb is suspended from a spring,
whereupon the spring is stretched 2 ft from its natural length. The
ball is started in motion with no initial velocity by displacing it
6 in above the equilibrium position. Assuming no air resistance,
find (a) an expression for the position of the ball at any time t,
and (b) the position of the ball at t = π 12 sec.
