I have trouble completing (b), as I do not know how to solve for the damping factor in this circuit, and hence cannot characterize this system. I have the poles of the system, where s ~= -3048.059 and s~= -8201.941. I also have the transfer function, which I used to find the poles.

2. Relevant equations

I found the transfer function to be:

[tex]G(s) = \frac{1}{CLs^2 + \frac{L+R^2C}{R}s + 2}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I just don't know how to solve for zeta.
