I am really struggling with this question...:yuck:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: Consider a damped oscillator, with natural frequency w_0 (omega_0) and damping constant B (beta) both fixed, that is driven by a force F(t)= F_0*cos(wt). Find the rate P(t) at which F(t) does work and show that the average < P > over any number of complete cycles is mBw^2*A^2.

any help would be amazing!!
