(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If F0= 0 and γ<<2ω0 where γ=b/m, sketch the resulting wave-form for displacement with time.Define Q,the quality parameter,and show on your sketch how the value of Q, influences the waveform

2. Relevant equations

mψ'' =-kψ-bψ' +F0exp(-iωt)

3. The attempt at a solution

ωmax=(ω0-γ^2/2)^(1/2)

if γ <<2ω0 then ωmax=ω0,

An other question is :Is the graph enought to define Q? ,i.e at resonance F0/k is Q times more.
