Show that the equation x(t)=(A+Bt)e^(-Beta*t) is indeed the solution for critical damping by assuming a solution of the form x(t)=y(t)exp(-Beta*t) and determining the function y(t).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a differential equation for the critically damped case that I can substitute x(t) and its appropriate derivatives into to solve for y(t)?? Hints, please!!! There are no examples like this in the text...
