Hey im new to this site, i used to have george jones as a proff he was an amazing guy but now this new proff i dont really get, i am having trouble with proofs, i dont know how to do them well i have 3 problems im having trouble with(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

given that the amplitude of a damped harmonic oscillator drops to 1/e of its initial value after n cycles, show the ratio of period of oscillation to the period of the same oscillator with no damping is,

T (damped)/T(undamped) = square root (1+ 1/(4pi squared n squared)

The second question is: the terminal speed of a freely falling ball is v. when the ball is supported by a light elastic spring the spring stretches by an amount x, show the natural frewuency of oscillation is:

w (omega) = (square root g/x) - g/(2v)

haha hey im jen by the way
