There is a certain equation relating both Mp (max. overshoot) and damping ration. Which is;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Mp = e^{(-ζ*pi)/(1-ζ2)1/2}

What I get from that equation is for every system a certain damping ratio will result the system in a certain amount of max. overshoot.

That sounds ridiculous, because every system must have its own inner dynamics, right ?

Can someone please explain me that phenomena ?
