a damped simple harmonic oscillator has mass m = 260 g, k = 95 N/m, and b = 75 g/s. Assume all other components have negligible mass. What is the ratio of the amplitude of the damped oscillations to the initial amplitude at the end of 20 cycles (Adamped / Ainitial)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

having trouble getting started, any help?

I know the equations, just not how to use them
