Could someone please give me a QUALITATIVE description of:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

-critical damping

-over damping

-under damping

So I can understand the physics behind the oscillatios in a circuit. I know the mathematical explanations (ie. over damping is when the characteristic polynomial solutions are both negative real numbers etc).

Thanks :tongue:
