I've been given (or have calculated) the equation for damped SHM of a spring, and have been told to calculate the period...
I'm given that:
Forced produced by damper: b(dx/dt) where b = 16N/ms
k = 344.5N/m
m = 2kg
I know that T = 2*pi/(W0)
Where W0 = sqrt(k/m)
But I don't know if damping will have an effect of period? :)
The Attempt at a Solution
Of course, I have tried using the above equation... plug k and m as W0. Would this be correct? Thanks for any help.
