if the amplitude of a damped oscillation is decrease to 1/e after n periods, how can i show that the frequency is about [1-(8pi^2n^2)-1]times the frequency of undamped ocillations? can i assume that the oscillation is critical damping such that the term b/2m and k/m can be cancel in the expression of the damped frequency and natural freuency relation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks for attention!!
