## Homework Statement

I am solving for the damping constant (b). The amplitude has decreased to 80% of its original height (0.1m) after 10 oscillations. The mass is 2 kg, k is 5000 N/m, w is 50 rads/s, T = pi/25 s.

## Homework Equations

x = 0.1cos(50t)

v = -5sin(50t)

a = -250cos(50t)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am not sure what equation to use, I tried

w = ((k/m)-(b^2/4(m)^2))^1/2
