## Homework Statement

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

## Homework Equations

I know that T = 2*pi/(W

_{0})

Where W

_{0}= 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 W

_{0}. Would this be correct? Thanks for any help.
