1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Plot total energy vs. time graph using MATLAB (damped system)

wn(the undamped natural frequency) = 2 rad/s

damping ratio, z = 0.01

mass = 10kg

initial displacement = 0.1

initial velocity = 0

2. Relevant equations

KE = (1/2)mv^2

PE = mgh

3. The attempt at a solution

I can get damping coefficient but that's about it...

I don't really know where to start from...
