1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
1.) After a 10lb weight is attached to a 5ft spring, the spring measures 7ft. The 10lb is replaced with 8lb, and placed in a medium offering resistence equal to the instantaneous velocity.
A) find the equation of motion if the weight is released 0.5ft below equilibrium with downward vel of 1ft/s.
B) What are the amplitude and period of the motion? How many complete vibrations does the weight complete in [tex]2\pi[/tex] seconds?
C) Find the times at which the weight passes through the equilibrium position heading downward.
2.) A mass of 1 slug, when attached to a spring, stretches it 2ft and then comes to rest in the equilibrium position. Starting at t=0, an external force equal to f(t)=8sin4t is applied to the system. Find the equation of motion if the surrounding medium offers a damping force numerically equal to 8 times the instantaneous velocity.
3. The attempt at a solution
2.) I left it with C1 and C2 b/c no initial cond were given.
