Rearranging the above equation by diving both sides by m, we will have:

d 2 x c dx k

dt 2 m dt m
Let us now recall that there are two types of frequencies in vibration problems: n (natural
angular frequency) and d (the frequency of damped vibration). The relation between
angular frequency rad / s and vHz is given by:

2v

T

## n is the natural angular frequency and is the damping ratio.

To find the frequency of vibration, we must work out n and .

If

## < 1: under damped

the known initial conditions of x0 0.048 and x 0m / s . To do so we will use the expression

After 0.026 second the velocity will become:

Let us first calculate the damping ratio:

c

1.029 1
c c 250.521

Here the system is critically damped which means that that it is defined by the equation
mx cx kx 0 and s1 s2 . We know that:

x n x0
xt e nt x0 cos 1 2 n t 0
sin 1 2 n t

1 2 n

The above cannot be directly applied in its current form since there is an indeterminate form
of

With the known initial conditions, that is, x0 0.048m and x 0 0m / s the above expression
will become:

## xt e 16.309t 0.048 0 16.309 0.048t

e 16.309t 0.048 0.782832t
The expression for displacement at any time is xt e 16.309t 0.048 0.782832t

The velocity will therefore be:

0.344575914e 0.440343
0.221843
The displacement after 0.027s is 0.044505916m or 44.505mm
The velocity after 0.027s is -0.221843m/s or -221.843mm/s

where is the angle, s is the the arc length subtended

## small displacement or rotations so this approximation is perfectly accurate. Applying this,

we will have:

The deflection of the spring is then s1 and the velocity of the damper is then s2 where:
