Please I don't understand this problem at all:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Consider a driven damped harmonic oscillator.Calculate the power dissipated by the damping force?

calculate the average power loss, using the fact that the average of (sin(wt+phi) )^2 over a cycle is one half?

Please can I have some help for it?
