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

Given damping constant b, mass m spring constant k,

in a damped driven oscilation system the average power introduced into the system equals the average power drained out of the system by the damping force, for what values of ω does the instantanious damping power = instantaneous drive power

2. Relevant equations

Total power of system =(-kx - b v(t)+ F_{0}Cos(ωt))v(t)

x(t)= A cos(wt + (phi))

3. The attempt at a solution

Edit: just tried again, I subbed in ma for F and the Still Stuck with amplitudes on one side, and stuck with phi's
